Governing Body

A local governing body is responsible for the strategic management of the school and represents all stakeholders in fulfilling its duties. The views of the Head Teacher, all other staff (teaching and non-teaching), parents and other stakeholders and members of the local community are all represented on a governing body by having representation at the meetings.The LGB has powers delegated by the Directors of the Community Academies Trust and reports to them on a half termly basis.

School governors commit to giving time and energy to the role. Each governor contributes to the work of the governing body and shares the load. Governors are asked to take part in regular meetings, read papers and find out about the issues being discussed.

A governing body works closely with its School Leadership Team with a view to promoting high standards of educational achievement. It fulfils its obligations by establishing the strategic framework by:

·         Setting aims and objectives for the school.

·         Adopting policies for achieving those aims and objectives.

·         Setting targets for achieving those aims and objectives.
