Governors

The Governing body consists of two parent governors, two Foundation Governors (appointed by the diocese), two teacher Governors, one LA or Community Governor, a Co-opted governor and the LA clerk.

The Governing Body meets termly to discuss matters relating to the running of the school, and to receive updates from the Education Department on changing policies relating to schools in general. In addition to this, each Governor has individual areas of responsibility and tries to visit the school on a regular basis for monitoring, then reporting back at the next Governor’s meeting. 

All governors, with the exception of Associate Governors, have full voting rights.
