Governors are like a Board of Directors and make decisions about how the school is run. They meet at least once a term in school.
- Governors are appointed to help:
- decide what is taught
- set standards of behaviour
- interview and select staff
- decide how the school budget is spent
School Governors have legal duties, powers and responsibilities. They can only act together, they cannot act individually. The Governors are responsible for an Annual Report to parents.
School Governors are:
- Teachers at the school
- Foundation governors appointed by the Bishop
- Local council representatives
- Staff governor – a representative of the non-teaching staff
- has a child in school
- is elected by parents of the school
- serve, as do other governors, for four years
- Parent Governors bring views of parents to the Governing Body, but they speak and act as individuals. They do not vote for all parents in general. They have equal status in the work of the Governing Body and have voting rights.
The Governing body can be contacted through the Chairperson, Mrs A Slater, at the school address.
