Many responses to the questionnaires were not sure about the role of the governors. The following information helps to understand the role and responsibilities of our school governors.

  • The names of the governors can be found above and on the Community Board at both ends of the school.
  • The governors are there to support the running of the school. There are three meetings held each term.
  • One meeting is the School Improvement meeting where governors discuss standards, staffing, training issues, new and reviewed policies and progress in all areas of the curriculum.
  • One meeting is the Resources meeting where the governors set the school budget and discuss priorities for the finances of the school.
  • The third meeting is the full governors meeting where the whole Governing bodies consider minutes from meetings, any training and any other issues.
  • The governors also come into school to work with school leaders in order to understand the working of the school.
