Governing Body

The Governing Body is made up of twelve people, three foundation (church) governors, three parent governors, three community governors and three staff governors. Details of who’s who is at the bottom of this page.

Our responsibilities

As Governors we are responsible for setting the strategic vision and objectives for the school, monitoring progress and maintaining standards and setting and monitoring the budget. In order to do this we work closely with staff in the school supporting and challenging them in the work that they do. This is often described as acting as a “critical friend” to the school.

We do this by examining the data, meeting with staff and regularly visiting school to look at what happens. There is a Governor linked to key areas such as Safeguarding and Special Educational Needs.


The full Governing Body meets four times a year, with four subcommittees meeting once a term throughout the school year. These are Curriculum and Standards, Resources, Safeguarding and Ethos.

  • Curriculum and Standards – this is where we monitor progress and achievement of pupils and ensure standards are maintained. It is where we follow up on actions from Ofsted Inspection reports.
  • Resources Committee – this committee is where the budget is set, reviewed and monitored. It also looks at all staffing issues.
  • Safeguarding - this committee monitors safeguarding, health and safety and any child protections policies.
  • Ethos - this committee monitors christian vision and reflects and acts upon the SIAMS action plan.
