There are currently 13 governors, with space for one more, and we range from those who are brand new to governing at our school to over eight years’ experience. Our Chair of Governors is Andrew Brown, who became a governor in 2006 and has been chair now for nearly 4 years.
Our primary role is to think strategically and to support and challenge the school to ensure that children are getting the best education possible; that the school is using its resources well and that the Christian ethos pervades the live of the school. To do this we have different committees who cover these roles. These committees are Standards, Resources, Pay & Personnel and Foundation. As well as these committees, we all come together each half term as a Full Governing Body.
As well as the formal meetings we also visit the school regularly during school time to see the school running and talk with staff and children about specific things to help us carry out self-evaluation activities and inform the school development plan.
