Governing Body

The school’s governing body was reconstituted under the 2012 regulation in July 2014, and consists of 16 governors, each with a term of office of four years.   The full governing body meet 4 times a year and the sub committees of Resources and Personnel and Learning and Pastoral meet each half term.

The governing body fully supports the DfE definition of its core purpose:

The purpose of governance is to provide confident, strategic leadership and to create robust accountability, oversight and assurance for educational and financial performance.

All boards, no matter what type of schools or how many schools they govern, have three core functions:

  • Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction;
  • Holding the headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils, and the performance management of staff; and
  • Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent.
