Governors & Academy Documents

We currently have a vacancy for a Parent Governor. If you have a child that attends the school and are interested, please contact Tina Cullen (Clerk to the Governors) via email -


When you think about who runs a school, the Headteacher and senior members of staff come instantly to mind. And quite rightly. However, behind the scenes is a governing body responsible for:

  • Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction of the School
  • Holding executive leaders to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils, and the performance management of staff
  • Overseeing the financial performance of the School and making sure money is well spent

Within that framework, Governors use their individual talents and interests to support, challenge and encourage the School and work co-operatively with the other school governors.

 In a strategic role a Governing Body is not involved in the nuts and bolts, day to day running of the school. That job is done by our experts, highly trained and qualified educators - the teachers. However, in amongst the work we undertake at committee meetings, full governing body meetings and school monitoring visits, you will find us at school events and parents evenings, clearly labelled, enquiring how your children are getting on, and what you feel about the school, so we get an accurate, overall picture of how things are.

Up to date Governance information can be found on the Government 'Get Info' website here.
