Our Work

The Governing Body operates essentially as a flat structure, without committees for specific areas of focus. Statutory Committees and Panels are in place for Headteacher Performance Management, Pay Review, Discipline, Grievance and Appeals.

Our Governing Body relies on a team approach with each individual contributing a range of skills and experience in for example, analysing performance data, budgeting and driving financial efficiency, or performance management and employment issues. The Governing Body meets once each half term.  At these meetings, attended by all governors, we discuss key improvement priorities and school budget, agree required actions and monitor the outcomes of previous or ongoing activities.

These formal meetings are supplemented by a programme of monitoring and review. Governors take responsibility for areas such as finance or health & safety, safeguarding, curriculum areas and special educational needs & disabilities.  Governors work more closely with the school in these areas to ensure we, and the school, are meeting our statutory obligations and doing the best for the children’s education and welfare.
