Governors make strategic decisions about how the school operates. The full Governing Body meets once a term, but sub-committees meet more frequently to discuss curriculum, personnel, premises and finance issues.
School Governors work in partnership with the Head Teacher and the Council, and share responsibility for the quality and equality of the curriculum on offer. Governors also provide essential links between the school, parents/carers, the local community and the Local Education Authority.
The School Governing body is made up of:-
2. Staff and the Head Teacher
3. Local council representatives
4. Local community representatives
Parent Governors have a child in the school, are elected by parents/carers of the school and serve, as do other governors, for up to four years, even if their child leaves the school.
Parents/carers can ask Parent Governors to bring the views of parents/carers to the Governing Body, but they speak as individuals. They have equal status in the work of the Governing Body and have voting rights.
