Guided by the Department of Education, the governing body acts as a 'critical friend' offering both support and challenge to the school setting its vision, ethos and strategic direction whilst at the same time agreeing targets for school improvement.

Our governing body has wide-ranging responsibilities and works with the Headteacher and staff to:

  • Agree the aims and values of the school

  • Ensure the curriculum is sufficiently broad and balanced and meets the requirements of the National Curriculum

  • Help to make decisions regarding the budget

  • Support the recruitment of staff

  • Monitor and review school's progress

  • Ensure that individual pupil's needs are met, including those with Special Educational Needs

  • Provide information about the school for parents

  • Establish and maintain positive links with the church and the local community.

Full governing body and committee meetings are held every half term. Serving the school community in this way is a rewarding experience with our success evidenced by the continuing improvement of our pupils' academic, creative and social development.
