– David Sawyers directly using david.sawyers@blueyonder.co.uk . Lucy Williams is the Clerk to Governors for the governing body. 

Governors are responsible for the strategic management of the school, working to ensure that it provides the best possible outcomes for all the children in the school. Together with the head teacher, who is responsible for day-to-day management, they set the school's aims and policies.

 

Governors have the responsibility for carrying out, when required, a number of important duties, including:

 

  • Setting and monitoring the school's budget

  • The appointment of staff

  • Setting standards for pupils' behaviour and discipline

  • Making sure school buildings are welcoming and safe

  • Setting and monitoring the school's aims and policies 

  • The decision whether to uphold permanent exclusions and some fixed term exclusions

  • Ensuring that the school provides a broad and balanced curriculum, in accordance with the requirements of the National Curriculum

 

Each governor is a member of either the 'Curriculum and Personnel' or 'Buildings and Finance' sub-committees which meet once a term i.e. on a six -weekly basis.  There is also a Full Governing Body meeting every term.

Each governor has responsibility for a subject and/or specific aspect of the school's work. This role involves keeping up to date with relevant legislation or OFSTED criteria and an annual Governor Learning Visit (often observing a lesson). The governor then reports back to the rest of the governing body. A list of which governor has which responsibility is in the attached document.
