“The headteacher, governors and senior leaders are ambitious for all pupils. They have addressed rigorously all of the areas for improvement from the previous inspection, and now teaching, pupils’ achievement and leadership and management, are all good.”
“The governing body is adept at holding school leaders to account. Governors receive, and understand, detailed information and data about the school’s work.”
(Ofsted : April 2015)
- The Governors work closely with the Headteacher and staff in order to ensure that the school’s objectives can be met.
- The Governing Body consists of the Headteacher, parents, members nominated by the Local Authority, Community Governors and representatives of the teaching and support staff of the school.
- Meetings of the full Governing Body are usually held every half term and sub-committees also meet regularly.
- Parent Governors are appointed as a result of nominations and elections in which all parents are eligible to stand and vote. One of their particular responsibilities is to provide a viewpoint from that of ‘parent’ to the Governing Body.
- If Parents wish to contact a Governor they may write, in confidence, addressed c/o the school.
