Who are we?
The Governing Body is a voluntary group made up of parents, representatives from the school staff, Local Education Authority and local community working alongside senior leaders and supporting teachers to provide excellent education to children.
What do we do?
Governors are responsible for overseeing the strategic management of the school in relation to strategy, policy, budgeting and staffing, including:
Establishing the vision, strategic framework and priorities for the school (e.g. setting aims and objectives, targets for achievement and policies)
Acting as a 'critical friend' to school leaders by challenging policy, practice and educational outcomes, as well providing advice and support
Overseeing internal organisation, financial management and control of the school
Governors bring a wide range of skills and expertise from their professional lives to the governing board and schools benefit greatly from working with skilled volunteers, for example anyone with experience of finance, law, premises management or human resources.
Interested in joining us?
The Governing Body is currently looking to recruit new community (Co-opted) governors to the Board, ideally with experience in human resources, recruitment or finance.
