The Role of the School Governors

Under the 1988 Education Reform Act the Governors are responsible for the effective running of the school, both financially and educationally.  They also appoint staff to the school.

Governors have organised themselves into committees which are responsible for finance, premises and the curriculum.  They report to the whole governing body, which meets at least once a term to discuss the Headteacher's report and all matters having a direct bearing on the school.  A copy of the Agenda and the Minutes of meetings are available in the school office for you to see.  If you have any points you would like raised at a meeting of Governors, please channel your concerns through either the Parent Governors or the Headteacher.
