Govenor Information

Declaration of interests


The Governing Body assists the Headteacher and the staff to decide on the school’s aims and strategic improvement. They also have a responsibility to provide the Headteacher and staff with support, constructive advice and information and to monitor and evaluate the school’s effectiveness.


The Headteacher and staff are accountable to the Governing Body for the school’s management and performance.


The Governing Body is made up of volunteers. We have five Parent Governors, who bring their own expertise as parents. Three Community Governors who are invited by the Governing Body to become members as they have specific areas of expertise. Four Staff Governors, including the Headteacher, to represent the views and expertise of the staff. Three Local Authority Governors who represent the Local Authority.


At our last Ofsted inspection in February 2013 it was stated that,


'Governors know the school well, are determined to improve it further and hold leaders to account for the effectiveness of the school. They have a clear understanding of the school’s strengths and how well it performs in comparison with other similar schools. They understand the areas for development and work closely with the school to refine and implement the school improvement plan. They are regular visitors to the school and are individually ‘attached’ to specific classes. They understand well the links between teachers’ performance and progression through the pay scales and how underperformance is tackled. The governing body has an effective committee structure and individual governors’ expertise is used well, for example to ensure that the school’s finances are carefully audited and well managed. The governors have a clear understanding of how the pupil premium funding is allocated and its impact in improving levels of pupil attainment. Governors are kept well informed by the school’s leadership and also attend regular training so that they can fulfil their roles more effectively. They ensure that the school meets all statutory obligations, particularly those related to safeguarding and the safe recruitment of staff.'


The Governing Body meet at least once per term. Each Governor is also a member of a least one sub-committee. These committees which meet at least termly are:-


·  Action Plan Monitoring Committee


·   Resources Committee


For further information about being a Governor or any other questions please contact Michelle Perryman, Chair of Governors, through the school.


The minutes of our meetings are available
 from the school on request.
