Governors

Our Governing Body is composed of a group of committed individuals who monitor and advise on all aspects of school activities for the school.

They appoint staff, review policies and priorities, monitor teaching and encourage the work of the school. Some of the governors are parents, some are nominated by the Local Education Authority, some are co-opted from the village, and others represent the staff.

The structure of the Governing Body comprises two sub-committees which meet half-termly. The Curriculum & Standards committee is concerned with Policies, Self Evaluation, and the School Improvement Plan. The Finance, Personnel and Premises committee is responsible for budget setting and monitoring and all issues relating to resources and school management. The full Governing Body meets termly plus one annual meeting to approve the budget.

The role of the Governors has evolved over the years but essentially remains the same – to help and support the Headteacher and staff in running the school and continuing to provide the best possible education for our children.
