Our membership structure is currently as follows:

  • 5 Co-opted governors
  • 3 Parent governors

  • Voting rights: Full Govs - No / Committee level - Yes

Much of the work of the Governing Body is carried out at committee level. We have two specially tasked committees in place who work to specific terms of reference and a scheduled programme of meetings. Specific governors are named members of these committees, however, all governors may attend these committee meetings if there is a relevant point of interest. In addition, we also have statutory committees in place for the purposes of pay, performance management, disciplinary and dismissal matters. Governors have specific responsibilities and curriculum links attached to their role and visit the school on a regular basis, meeting with staff and pupils.

The role of school governor is on a voluntary basis and the usual term of office is four years, which may be extended upon re-election. Parent governors may complete their term of office once their child has left the school.

Whole School Community - Our Role

As a Governing Body, we believe that parents, carers, pupils, staff, governors and members of the wider local community all have an equally important role to play in the success of our school and we value the contribution of our whole school community enormously. Your views are important to us, and we are always happy to hear your suggestions for school improvement. If you would like to pass on a suggestion, or if you are interested in finding out about how you can help our school by becoming a governor, our Chair of Governors can be contacted via the school office for further information.
