Our school governors

The Governing Body is made up of:
•    Parent Governors (elected by the Parents)
•    Co-opted Governors (appointed by the Governing Body)
•    Staff (elected by School Staff)
•    Local Authority (LA) Governors (appointed by the Local Authority)

Work of the Governing Body:
School Governors are the equivalent of a Board of Directors and make strategic decisions about how the school is run.  They meet on average once each term as a whole group and more regularly as members of various committees.  School Governors have legal duties, powers and responsibilities. They can only act corporately - not as individuals.  The Governors are made up from parents, staff, the Local Authority and community representatives.

Governors are appointed to help to:
•    decide what is being taught
•    set standards of behaviour
•    agree staffing
•    decide how the school budget should be spent
