Meetings and Structure

The full governing body usually meets once per term.  Most governors also sit on one or two committees, which meet more frequently:

  • Curriculum and Standards Committee
  • Personnel and Finance Committee
  • Health. Safety and Safeguarding Committee

Committees also usually meet once per term, in time to report on their work to the full governing body meeting.  Each Committee has its own Terms of Reference.  Individual governors also take on specific responsibilities e.g. linked to a subject area such as literacy or numeracy, or a focus area such as special educational needs/disabilities (SEND) or child protection.

The Governing Body is, therefore rightly proud of the achievements of the school, not only in terms of its academic achievement, but also in the solid foundations it provides in preparing all our pupils for the remainder of their formative education. Our community matters and our commitment to high expectations for all is at the core of everything that we do.
