What do Governors do?
The Governors are responsible for working strategically with the school to ensure that it delivers high quality education and other opportunities for children in both schools. They work with the  Headteacher, who is responsible for day-to-day management, to set our school’s aims and policies and to monitor all aspects of school life.
Governors have three main roles:
To provide strategic direction for the school 
To act as a critical friend to the Headteacher
To ensure accountability
They also carry out a number of other important duties, which include:
Determining how the school's budget is spent 
The appointing and dismissing of staff 
Hearing appeals and grievances 
Forming policy on the school's curriculum and collective worship 
Setting standards for pupils' behaviour and discipline
Making sure school buildings are welcoming and safe 
Setting and monitoring the school's aims and policies
This is demanding but very rewarding and is a good way to give back to your local community.
As a school we recognise that a diversity of thought voices and perspectives is essential to good governance and the effective running of any organisation.  We regularly collect diversity information from our governors and, depending on current data, can use this to:
  • Target recruitment to address gaps in experience and diversity
  • Develop and adapt board practices to ensure full participation
  • Prioritise training and awareness-raising in identified areas
  • Address potential 'blind spots' through seeking wider advice and perspectives on current and upcoming opportunities, challenges and risks

However, we are unable to publish this information as it would mean that individual members of our governing body are identifiable.
