Governors

The Governing Body shares responsibility with the Headteacher for the successful management of the school and the provision of the best possible education for its pupils. Apart from the Headteacher, who also sits as a Governor, the Governors are lay people from various walks of life. Three Governors are elected by parents to act as their representatives. All Governors receive training at the outset of their term of office as well as ongoing development training.

The Governing Body meets regularly on official business. Governors also play an important role in school life through monitoring curriculum standards, ensuring the fabric of the building provides for a first class education and listening to the views of staff, parents and pupils alike.

A formal complaints procedure exists under section 23 of the Education Reform Act (see Appendix 2), by which a sub-committee of the Governing Body may decide upon written complaints from parents. However, this procedure is intended only for very serious complaints that have not been resolved by informal contact between parents, the class teacher and Headteacher.
