Governors

Our Governing Body is made up of 15 representatives from the community, parents, staff and Local Authority.

Working in partnership with the head and other staff, governors are responsible for:

  • the Centre's aims and policies;
  • improving standards of teaching and achievement;
  • appointing and performance managing the Head Teacher;
  • setting the Centre's budget plan and monitoring expenditure;
  • drawing up an action plan after an inspection, and monitoring the success of the plan.

Governors meet together twice a term with meetings usually running from about 6.00pm to 9.00pm on a Tuesday.  All our meeting dates are in the diary.

Governors are also asked to join one of the governor committees that meet 3 times a year:

  • Resources;
  • Curriculum and Training;
  • Children, Families and Communities.

Governors also take on a “link” role with special responsibility for an area such as governor training or a particular area of the Centre’s work.  Once elected, governors have a three year term of office.
