Governors

What is a governing body?

The Government requires that each school has a leadership and management team, a governing body. As a Voluntary Aided school our team is made up of the various stakeholders that the school serves – the church, parents, local authority, and staff. Governors are either elected or appointed, for example parent governors are elected from the parent body, and Foundation governors are nominated by the church.

The information set out on this web page is also in a PDF format if you prefer.

What does a governing body do?

The governing body works in partnership with the headteacher, staff, parents and the LA to raise standards of achievement in the school, led by the Chair of Governors. The main functions of the governing body are to:

  • Provide a strategic view
  • Act as a critical friend
  • Ensure accountability

The governing body has wide-ranging responsibilities and works with the Headteacher and staff to:

  • Agree the aims and values of the school
  • Make decisions on the budget and approve the School Improvement Plan
  • Ensure that the National Curriculum is taught
  • Monitor and review the school’s progress       
  • Ensure that individual pupil’s needs are met, including special needs
  • Be involved in the recruitment of staff
  • Provide information about school for parents
  • Establish and maintain positive links with the church and the local community

To find out more about the governing body, please see the letters from the Chair of Governors to parents; copies are available in the school  office.
