Governing Body

The main role of the Governing Body is strategic.  In consultation with Mr Hawley, we determine the strategic path for the future development of the school in order to ensure continued improvement.  
The Governing Body's key functions are to:
  • Set the aims and objectives of the school
  • Set targets
  • Monitor and evaluate the progress the school is making
  • Develop school policies
  • Manage the school budget
  • Act as a critical friend to the head teacher - so be supportive yet challenging
The Governing Body meets formally four times a year whilst the two committees meet twice each term.  
There are also three informal meetings where planning and/or training takes place each year.
For 2019-2020 the governors are:
