The Governing Body is made up of volunteers who give freely of their time and expertise. Together they play an invaluable role in helping maintain our high standards through a combination of support and challenge.

The full Governing Body meets once per term but operates a number of smaller sub committees with delegated powers. These committees are:

  • Academy Members Steering Group
  • Finance and Buildings
  • Personal Development, Behaviour and Welfare
  • Teaching, Learning, Curriculum and Outcomes

Each committee has its own relevant duties and terms of reference.

There are other statutory and non-statutory committees that are convened as necessary, for example the Exclusion Committee.

Members of the Governing Body also act as Link Governors. These Governors have a specific interest in their nominated field, for example health and safety, and support the on-going work of the school via regular communication with appropriate staff.

With the exception of the Headteacher, Governors serve a term of 4 years after which they can be re-elected or re-appointed.
