Governing Body

Welcome to the Governors section of our school website. We thought you might like to know a little bit about us, our role and responsibilities.

The Governing Body (GB), together with the Headteacher, staff and Local Authority is responsible for the school. The GB must hold the school to account for the standards it achieves. It must ensure that all resources, including the school budget and staff, are properly used to meet the needs of all students and provide value for money. It works to both support and challenge the school.
The GB appoints the Headteacher and delegates the responsibility for the day to day running of the school to the Headteacher. Individual governors have no power as such and cannot act or speak on behalf of the GB unless power has been delegated to.

What qualifications are needed?

No formal qualifications are required, just a desire to put experience and life skills to good use. Governors are people with an interest in education and a belief in working together to improve the outcomes for our students. They are people who have a few hours to spare each month, and enjoy being part of a team.

Who are the Governors?

The GB is made up of four groups who represent the ‘stakeholders’ of the school: staff, parents, the local community and the Local Authority. This range of people is intended to provide a broad and balanced selection of viewpoints and to represent each sector of the school’s society. No governor is a ‘delegate’ for their group. The term of office is four years and they can be re-elected for further terms.
