Governors

Be a School Governor

Governors have a vital role. They help set the strategic direction of the school and ensure it delivers on its responsibilities. This requires a group of committed people from many walks of life with a mix of skills and experience. They all share an interest in education, a desire to help the school and an enquiring mind.

 

Almost anyone over 18 years of age can become a governor. There are no particular qualifications or requirements other than a commitment to give time to the role and a capacity for working with other people. The most important thing is that governors have skills to contribute and the willingness to learn and develop their abilities as governors.

 

This is a part-time, voluntary role which is very rewarding and interesting. Successful applicants will be given a full induction programme and on-going training and support is available.

 

Our Governing Body

Our Governing Body meet 7 times a year to discuss various aspects of school life such as standards, teaching and finance.  The Governors meet as a full Governing Body at all meetings with all Governors being a member of the Personnel & Pay Committee, Complaints Committee, Personnel Appeal Committee & Pupil Discipline Committee.
