The role of the Governing Board is to provide strategic input and to act as a ‘critical friend’, supporting and also challenging the school. Their remit includes being involved in monitoring that pupils are making progress, having responsibility for overall school budgets and also contributing to development plans for the school. Our Governors are all volunteers.

The Governing board oversees the work of the committees – they all report to the main body who have to approve all decisions and suggestions. Governors take a keen interest in the school and can choose which area of the curriculum and school life to take a special interest in.

The Steering Committee consists of the Chairs of the committees and the Head teacher. We make sure that decisions are implemented and that the work programme of each group is thoroughly resourced and progressed. The group set targets for Governors and decides topics for extending the individual Governors expertise in training sessions’.

The Premises Committee is responsible for ensuring that the school, staff and premises comply with the Local Authority’s health and safety policy and practices. The group must take reasonable steps to make sure that the buildings, equipment and materials are safe for everyone on the premises. The committee conducts a health and safety inspection of the school and grounds annually and prepares a report of the conditions. This enables the Governing Body to monitor that health and safety and maintenance issues are addressed.

The Resources Committee meets once each half term and occasionally more frequently, when or if necessary. The head arranges the agenda and we cover all aspects of Finance and Staffing. There are different aspects of the Finance and the staffing needs to be discussed at each meeting. The committee has to agree a budget for the year and monitor it throughout the year. The financial part of the Resources Committee is a very responsible role and therefore the Governing Body has increased the number of members on this committee.

The Teaching and Learning Committee is responsible for making sure all aspects of the National Curriculum are followed and that targets are set and met. This committee provides information to the Governing body about how the curriculum is taught, evaluated and resourced. The group is responsible for ensuring the curriculum is broad and balanced by reviewing the many policies.
