Governing Body

 Our role is a supporting role. We are also involved in monitoring and evaluating the work of the school. We meet each half term to review the work of the school and to plan for the future.

Following the Ofsted inspection and subsequent HMI visits, the Governing Body assumed full control of all decisions and temporarily removed the committee structure with the exception of Headteacher Performance Management, Pay & Admissions.
