Governors and Meetings

The governors of our school are all volunteers who give of their time and expertise freely. Their areas of responsibility are:

  • the finances of the school;
  • to provide a ‘critical friendship’ role;
  • staff appointments;
  • premises oversight and building use;
  • curriculum monitoring oversight;
  • to provide a relationship between the parents, children and local area.

Some governors are asked to become governors because they represent the Church, others are chosen to represent the local community. The school staff and Mums, Dads and Carers are also represented.

The governors meet on a regular basis and as the need arises. Minutes of formal meetings are accessible below. Paper copies of any these documents, or school policies, are available through the school office.
