Governing Board

We have a very supportive Governing Board.

They are responsible for all aspects of school life. Their duties include deciding school policies on admissions, curriculum, discipline, standards of behaviour and they also decide how the school budget is spent.

They exercise these responsibilities, in the main, through the staff they employ. With the professional expertise of the Head Teacher and staff, the Governing Board strives to provide an ever-improving standard of education for our children and an ever-improving standard in the school’s overall performance.

School Governors have legal duties, powers and responsibilities. They can only act together: they cannot act individually.

Parent Governors bring the views of parents to the Governing Board but they speak and act as individuals. They should not be thought of as delegates or “mouthpieces” of the parents: they do not vote for all the parents in general. They have equal status in the work of the Governing Board and have voting rights.
