School Governing Body

The school governing body divides it's work between three committees that each meet every half term. All governors can be contacted through the school office.

The Whole Governing Body

All governors meet together to monitor the implementation of school policies, to make strategic decisions about the work of the school and to ratify the work of the sub-committees.

The Chair of the Governing Body is David Higlett.

The Resources Sub-Committee

This sub-committee meets to monitor the financial decisions made within school. It also sets and monitors policies to do with the employment of staff. Their final responsibility is to monitor the management and development of the school buildings and grounds.

This sub-committee is chaired temporarily by Kristin Jones

The Teaching and Learning Sub-Committee

This sub-committee ensures that policies relating to the curriculum are being implemented effectively in school. They also monitor the effectiveness of teaching and learning.

This sub-committee is chaired by Jack Davies
