School Governors

School governors are volunteers who help to run the school.  Governors have legal duties, powers and responsibilities. They can only act together – they cannot act individually. The group of school governors is called the 'governing body'.

Governors are elected from parents, school staff, community representatives and people with special skills. The most important qualities for being a governor are enthusiasm, commitment and an interest in education. You don’t need teaching experience, but it’s useful to bring skills from other areas of your life.

The headteacher is responsible for the day to day running of the school. The school governors are involved in decisions about all aspects of managing the school – such as running buildings and budgets, supporting staff and setting standards of school discipline. Governors also help to make big decisions about the school’s long-term goals. They support the headteacher, but also ask questions and make sure the headteacher is taking the school in the right direction.

The Governors meet approximately twice a term as a full governing body. Additionally they visit the school regularly, take part in 'Learning Walks' and attend committee meetings for various aspects of school life. The current clerk to governors is Mrs Jo Ingle.
