Who are the Governors and what do they do?
Governors are a group of volunteers who include parents, staff and members of our local community and church. Our main role is to promote ongoing improvements in standards throughout the school. We are involved, along with Mr Gunn and the staff, in planning the school’s long-term direction and we evaluate progress. We help set the school’s aims and values and many of our responsibilities carry a statutory requirement. This means we are obliged by law to do certain things such as agree the annual budget.
As well as attending full Governing Body meetings twice a term, governors are also involved in sub-committees. There are four main ones which meet termly – Resources, Standards, Wellbeing and Spiritual Life as well as others such as Admissions, which meet when necessary.
