Schools are run by a Governing Body working with the Headteacher and Senior Management Team to ensure pupils get a good education. The Governing Body of a school is responsible for ensuring that it is run to promote pupil achievement. The Governing Body is made up of parent, staff, local authority and co-opted representatives.

Priorities include:

  • Setting strategic direction, policies and objectives
  • Approving the school budget
  • Reviewing progress against the school’s budget and objectives
  • Supporting the Headteacher and acting as a ‘critical friend’
  • Evaluating the school’s performance through results and data

Governing Bodies make their decisions based on the advice of committees that deal with specific issues. In addition to full Governing Body meetings, governors also meet as part of the following committees: Premises/Finance/Pay & Conditions/Staffing/Standards & Achievement.

Parents are welcome to contact a Governor directly. Governors are often to be found at the school at the start and end of the school day and are approachable.

If you wish to write to a specific Governor, this can be done by addressing the letter and handing the letter in at school reception for the Governor concerned. Letters to the Governing Body as a whole should be addressed to the Chairman and delivered in the same manner.

While we welcome letters and value your comments, initial complaints and issues relating to the day to day running of the school, should in the first instance, be referred to the Headteacher.
