Education in schools has changed dramatically in the last two decades. These changes have transformed the role and work of governing bodies. They now have key responsibilities for setting their school’s aims and policies, deciding how money will be spent, managing the employment of staff, and the maintenance and development of the premises. Most important of all, they have an important role in the main purpose of their school – ensuring that its pupils receive the best possible education.

Effective governing bodies work in close partnership with the headteacher in making decisions. The head, not the governing body, is responsible for the day-today leadership and management of the school. The responsibilities of the governing body are defined in law. They are predominantly strategic and include:

  • being accountable for the performance of the school;
  • planning the future direction of the school;
  • promoting high standards of educational attainment;
  • setting targets for pupil achievement;
  • taking general responsibility for the conduct of the school;
  • managing the school’s budget, including key staffing decisions

The current composition of the Governing Board, including terms of office, is set out separately on the School’s Full Governing Body Membership List.


The Chair of Governors is Mrs Sarah Weedon. If you would like to get in touch with the governors please contact the school office.
