School Governors


The Governing Body of the school consists of elected parents, local education authority nominees, foundation governors, parish council representatives and elected teachers. the Governors meet at least twice a week and have general responsibility for the effective management of the school. they work within the framework set by both national legislation and the policies of the local education authority.

Their responsibilities include the appointment and dismissal of staff, discipline, control of the delegated school budget, the forming of curriculum policies and maintenance of the premises. In practice, the Governors delegate the day to day running of the school to the headteacher.

Parents can raise any concerns with a governor at any time, although it is usually more appropriate to contact the headteacher in the first instance.

Election and appointment of Governors take place every four years.
