Our Governing Board plays a key role in developing the strategic direction of the school and we are fortunate to have a committed, diverse and caring team of people.
Governors have a vital role in the school, and work together to achieve the following:
ensuring the school has a clear vision and strategic plan,
holding Mrs Beard, as headteacher, to account for the educational performance of the school and the performance management of the staff and
overseeing the financial performance of the school and ensuring money is well spent
All governors join at least one of the four Committees (Teaching & Learning, Resources, Leadership & Teachers’ Pay and Admissions). The Teaching & Learning and Resources Committees meet twice each term. The Pay Committee meets once a term. The Admissions Committee meets twice a year. They also play a key role in monitoring the progress of the School Improvement Plan, which can involve discussions and meetings with staff, visiting the school and sharing feedback. The Governing Board meets as a whole twice a term and supports the Headteacher with preparing for OfSTED and SIAMS (Statutory Inspection of Anglican & Methodist Schools) inspections.
The Governing Board produce an annual Impact Statement to provide information on their work from the previous year. The 2016-17 Impact Statement is available to read via the link below:
