The role of a Governor has been described as that of a ‘Critical Friend’. Governors are volunteers drawn from the staff, parents and wider community of the school.
Governors endeavour to get to know the school well by visiting it regularly and supporting events.
The role of the governor includes:
Governors serve for terms of up to four years, but they may serve for longer if re-elected. The Full Board of the Governing Body meets approximately five times in each school year, but a lot of the detailed work is entrusted to committees who report back to the Full Board.
Committees meet approximately once each half term. The main committees are Standards, Curriculum, Inclusion & Pupils and Finance, Personnel & Buildings.
