What is our role ?

Governors do not manage the school. That is the role of the Headteacher and as Governors we aim to support him in doing this. Governors are responsible for the strategic vision of the school and for supporting the Headteacher and his staff in achieving that vision. Governors have responsibility for appointing the Headteacher, managing the school’s budget, setting annual targets and monitoring performance against those targets, all in the interest of raising standards of achievement. In addition to these statutory responsibilities, Governors do a wide variety of other things, either through formal committee activity or through personal involvement with the day-to-day life of the school.

The governing body should have a focus on three key strategic areas - as identified in the most recent governor handbook:


a. Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction;

b. Holding the headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils, and the performance management of staff; and

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


Composition of the Governing Body


The Governing Body consists of a maximum of 20 members, consisting of the following:

A maximum of 7 Parent Governors (min 2)

2 Partner Governors

1 Local Authority Governor

1 Staff Governor – who can be represented through co-option

The Headteacher  (ex-officio)

A maximum of 8 co-opted governors (including 1 staff governor)


There is a single governing body gathering / meeting; this for the academic year 2016-17 takes place every ½ term (6 in total)

If you are interested in becoming a Governor or would like further information on being a Governor please contact the school.
