Governing Body Chair: Peter Hilton Vice Chair: Julie Bacon
Clerk to Governors: Nigel Manders-Jones
The Governing Body takes a strategic role, acts as a critical friend to the school and is accountable for its decisions. It sets aims and objectives, reviews, agrees and monitors policies, targets and priorities and is accountable for the efficient and effective use of its funding. The Full Governing Body meets at least three times a year. There are a number of Working Parties which meet regularly and to which the Governing Body can delegate certain responsibilities. The Governing Body can and does establish ad-hoc working parties as the need arises made up of suitably experienced governors, in order to deliver against deadlines with which it is faced.
The Working Party structure is as follows:
Standards Chair: Martyn Taylor
The Standards Working Group (included in FGB meetings wherever possible)
The Standards Working Group, in collaboration with the staff, look at raising standards. The working party gathers information about how the curriculum is taught, evaluated and resourced. It reviews policies, ensures that pupils with Special Educational Needs have their needs met and that appropriate provision is made available for all pupils, including those on the Pupil Premium Register. It makes appropriate recommendations to the Finance Working Party in relation to staffing.
