Governing Body

Due to low Governor numbers an Interim Advisory Board has been introduced to assume the responsibilities of the Governing Body and to support the school through the current period, helping it manage the challenges of the Covid-19 pandemic. This Board in comprised of local Governors and Trustees. The Local Governing Body will be re-established at the earliest opportunity.

The Interim Advisory Board has a wide ranging role and is responsible for the overall operation of the school, including making sure the school’s finances are operated and spent effectively, promoting high standards of achievement for all pupils, appointing staff, reviewing policy and ensuring the school’s curriculum is broad and balanced.

Once re-established the Governing Body will take on these responsibilities, which are delegated by the Trust via the Terms of Reference

Many responsibilities are delegated to monitoring pairs who visit the school up to 3 times per year.

Parent Governors are an important part of the Governing Body and elections are held when vacancies arise and information asking for nominations is distributed to all parents.

You can contact the Governing Body/Interim Advisory Board through the school or by email via the Clerk, Laura Bunting.
