Governance

Our governing body are an exceptionally committed and knowledgeable team, several of whom have had links with the school and its community over a number of years.

They work with, challenge and support the Senior Leadership Team, staff and students to ensure that the school is providing the best opportunities possible for all students, both academically and personally. They regularly visit the school so that they have a clear understanding of what is happening and how we might best use our resources to make improvements. Some of our governors are parents of current or former students so they have a clear insight into the needs of students and their families. The governing body has two staff governors. Other governors are member elected onto the governing body because of the skills and knowledge they can bring.

Opportunities do arise for new governors to join the Governing Body either through election, for staff or parents, or through co-option, depending on the vacancies which arise. Parents are alerted of these opportunities by letter through the SIMS app and via the website.

The full governing body meets four times a year and delegates responsibility for specific aspects of our work to two committees:

    • The Resources Committee
      Responsible for Finance; Health & Safety and security; staffing, school buildings and site.
    • The Curriculum and Standards Committee
      Responsible for: academic standards; teaching and learning; curriculum, attendance, behaviour and examinations.

All Governors are fully committed to the safeguarding of our students.
