The Governing Body

Chair of Governors: Mrs Sarah Winkley

Vice Chair of Governors: Mrs Thaleia Ashley

Parent Governors:  Mrs C Elderkin, Mrs Jill Collins and Mrs Sarah Winkley

The Governing Body works with the Headteacher and the staff at the school to ensure that the school provides a good quality of education for all its pupils. Governors work in partnership with the Headteacher to set the strategic direction of the school. Governors are not expected and should not make day to day decisions about how the school is run. That is the role of the Headteacher and senior staff. Governors have three main roles: to provide strategic direction for the school; to act as a critical friend to the Headteacher and to ensure accountability

A formal meeting is held once a term for the full Governing Body. There are separate committee meetings where smaller groups of governors meet to discuss personnel, finance, environment and the school curriculum.

There are various types of governors drawn from different areas of the community including parents, the local authority, the church and wider community and staff representatives. 

Each year Governors are asked to sign a Code of Conduct which outlines and clarifies their roles and responsibilities ensuring the Body functions efficiently. Training is available and Governors seek to ensure that the body as a whole have the appropriate knowledge and skills to fulfil the role. Click here to see the Governors Training Record.

How Do I Contact a Governor?

Parents are welcome to contact a Governor directly. If you wish to write to a specific Governor or the body as a whole, this can be done by clearly addressing the letter and handing it into the school office.
