Governors’ and Trustees’ Information

Welcome to the Governors' and Trustees' Information Page

As a Local Governing Board, we have responsibility for determining, monitoring and keeping under review the broad policies, plans and procedures within which the school operates.

To achieve this we work very closely with the head teacher and the whole senior leadership team.

Whilst much of the work we do is ‘behind the scenes’, we are keen to be accessible to staff and parents when necessary.
 

The strategic function of our Local Governing Board can be summarised as:

        1.  Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction

        2. Holding the Headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and              its pupils, and the performance management of staff

        3. Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well                spent.

        4. Ensuring the voices of stakeholders are heard.

The Governing Board is made up of the following members:
