Governing Body

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.
