The Governing Body is made up of 12 governors including the Headteachers. Some are elected by parents, some are appointed by the Local Education Authority and some are co-opted by the Governing Body because of their interests, skills or experience. In addition, there are two staff representatives who are elected by the staff of the school, and the Headteacher who is not a governor but is entitled to attend all committee meetings. 

The Governors work in partnership with the Heads and the staff of the school. As well as providing advice and acting as a link between the school and the local community, their main responsibilities are:

  • establishing the aims and policies of the school
  • to agree and allocate the school’s budget
  • to agree the school’s curriculum policy including the provision of religious education, special needs and Sex and Relationships education
  • the appointment of staff
  • the school’s organisation and discipline policy
