Below is just a brief snapshot of who we are, what we do. If you would like to find out more information or have any queries or comments for the governors, please leave a message in the school office and one of us will get back to you as soon as possible. We are always on the look out for new governors as existing members come to the end of their 4 year term of office and move on to other things.
So, who are we? There are four categories of governor: parents, staff, community and local authority, making up a governing body of ten members. As individuals, we each have different reasons for becoming a governor, come from different backgrounds and have a wide range of skills and experience between us, which we are able to use in our work with the school. As governors, we give up our time on a voluntary basis but it is a very rewarding and interesting way to become involved in the life of a school.
And, what do we do? It is the role of the governing body to help define and set the strategic goals for the school’s development, to monitor and evaluate progress towards the achievement of these, and to act as a ‘critical friend’ to the Headteacher. Our ultimate aim is to ensure that the school is providing the best possible education for its children and is continually looking at ways to do things even better.
The full governing body meets twice a term. We have clear agendas and objectives at each meeting, although there is always opportunity for extra discussion on specific issues as appropriate.
