How We Work
The governors meet once a term as a full governing body.
We receive a detailed update from the Headteacher, discuss all the major issues for the school, review how we are doing against the aims we have set ourselves and, amongst many other things, agree the annual budget.
We also have a number of sub-committees which meet on a regular basis. Each governor is a member of at least one committee. These include:
- Learning & Achievements and Admissions Committee
- Finance & Premises Committee
- Personnel & Pay Committee
Additional to these formal meetings governors also get involved with school matters in a number of other ways: The Chair and Vice Chair meet regularly with the Headteacher and Senior Manager to support the work of the school. From time to time, governors form small time-limited working parties to work on specific issues or projects as needed. Governors also make class room visits to observe lessons.
As governors we are actively involved in the life of the school, some as parents as well as governors, but all of us making regular visits to see the work of the school.
