Governing Body

The Governing Body

The Governing Body has an important part to play in supporting and monitoring the life of the school.  It is composed of elected members who represent the parents and teaching staff, members appointed by the Local Authority, Community Governors and Co-opted  members. Parents who would like further information about the Governing Body or who may be interested in becoming a governor should ask at school.

The Governing Body has 2 sub-committees to deal with specific issues such as appointments, finance and learning and teaching (Resources Team (REST) and Curriculum and Standards Team (CAST). One of its major concerns is the organisation and implementation of what is learned. In addition, governors constantly monitor the school’s curriculum aims, which are included in the School Improvement Plan, as well as the construction and implementation of the School Improvement Plan. Governor Training is undertaken to keep abreast of current issues and initiatives.
