The Governing Board meets once every term to discuss school business and monitor progress in meeting school improvement targets. ‘Resources’ and ‘Teaching and Learning’ sub-committees meet regularly and report back to the full Governing Board. The Student Discipline, Staff Dismissal and Appeals Committees also meet as and when necessary as do convened Appointments Committees. The Chair of Governors keeps in close contact with the school throughout the year and meets regularly with the Headteacher.
The Governing Board monitors the progress of the School Development Plan, is involved in the appraisal of all staff and works with the Headteacher in managing the school’s budget and resources.
