What is the Governing Body?

The Governing Body plays a key role in ensuring that our school provides a safe and secure learning environment for all our pupils and monitors the work of the school to ensure that all pupils receive an effective and high quality education.  Its role is to provide strategic support whilst leaving the day to day running of the school to the Headteacher and Senior Leaders.  The Governing Body does not make all decisions but delegates responsiblity to its sub-committees who hold termly meetings and then feed back into the termly Full Governing Body meeting.

The sub-committees are:
