Governors

Meet the Governors

School governors are people who want to make a positive contribution to children’s education. Governors are one of the largest volunteer forces in the country and have an important part to play in raising school standards, by supporting and challenging school leaders.

Our governing body consists of 10 members and is supported by the clerk.

The purpose of the clerk’s role is to:

• Provide advice to the governing body on governance, constitutional and procedural matters.
• Provide effective administrative support to the governing body and its committees.
• Ensure the governing body is properly constituted.
• Manage information effectively in accordance with legal requirements.

 

Our governance is at two levels - the board of Trustees (follow the link below for more detail) and the Local Governing Body to whom there is a huge amount of delegation.
