We are very lucky to have a very dedicated Board of Governors, who work extremely hard on behalf of the school. Each Governor is a volunteer and receives no payment for what can sometimes be a very demanding and difficult role.
Many of our Governors are parents, who hold down a full time job as well as dealing with Governing Body business. We do not underestimate their contribution to the school and thank them for their hard work and commitment. All governors terms of office, other than that of the Headteacher, is for 4 years.
Full Governing Body meetings are held each term and meetings will focus on either curriculum and pupil related matters or resouces. Every half term there will be data meeting with a working party of Governors.
Individual Governors agree to accept responsibilities for different areas of the school, their role within the school is to monitor the way the school is managed by the Headteacher and Senior Leadership Team and to act as a ‘Critical Friend’ to the school. The governors set the overall policy and ethos of the school. Their main roles are to monitor and evaluate school improvement including curriculum, finance, premises and personnel. They also set pupil targets for the end of Key Stage 1 and 2.
Our Governors are always willing to listen to parents’ views of the school and to approach the Headteacher with any concerns parents may have. Parents wishing to contact the Governing Body can do so by writing to the Clerk to Governors c/o the School Office.
