The Governing Body - Roles and Responsibilities

What do the Governing Body do?

The Governors have a general responsibility for the effective management of the school, but do not take decisions about the day to day running of the school. This responsibility lies with the Headteacher.

The Governing Body has specific responsibility in a number of areas including:

- Curriculum and conduct of the school
- Children with special educational needs
- Overseeing the school budget
- Staff appointments and disciplinary procedures
- Discipline and attendance of pupils
- Community use of the school

We meet at full Governing body meetings at least once a term, as well as various sub-committee meetings.

How to get involved?

Parents are well-represented on our Governing Body. No formal qualifications are required, so if you feel that you have the relevant skills to enhance the effectiveness of the body and improve outcomes for local children, please contact either the school office or mail the  Chair of Governors.
