The Governing Body

The Governing Body is the school’s accountable body. It is responsible for the conduct of the school and for promoting high standards. The governing body aims to ensure that children are attending a successful school which provides them with a good education and supports their well-being.

  • Agreeing the policy framework for achieving those aims and objectives

The school governing body is made up of the following:

  • Parents (5)

  • Headteacher (1)

  • Staff (3)

  • Community Governors (7)

Parent Governors:

  • Have a child in the school

  • Are elected by parents of the school
