Governing Body

The school’s governing body was reconstituted under the 2012 regulation in July 2014, and consists of 16 governors, each with a term of office of four years.   The full governing body meet 4 times a year and the sub committees of Resources and Personnel and Learning and Pastoral meet each half term.

The governing body fully supports the DfE definition of its core purpose:

“In all types of schools, governing bodies should have a strong focus on three core strategic functions:

  • Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction;
  • Holding the headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils, and the performance management of staff; and
  • Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent.”
