Governing Body Membership & Register of Governor Directorships

The role of the Governing Body is around strategic leadership, management and accountability.

They manage the school’s finances, ensure that the premises are maintained well and are safe. They support the headteacher and other senior leaders to make decisions in the best interests of the pupils, and challenge them to provide the best possible education for our community.

As well as regular Full Governing Body meetings, there is a Finance Committee (chaired by James Messham) and a Data Committee (chaired by Alison Talbot).

The Governing Body consists of the Headteacher, two Staff Governors (elected by staff), four Parent Governors (elected by parents) and four Community Governors (co-opted by the Governing Body). No allowances are paid to Governors. The attendance record of Governors at meetings is detailed on page 8 of the Company Accounts (also on this website).
