Chair of Governors


Main Governors’ meetings are held at least once a term. There are also two committees which report back to the Full Governing Body meetings:

  • Resources and Infrastructure – this committee monitors and evaluates the utilization of all physical, financial and human resources. The committee looks at best value for money and ensures that the school is sufficiently resourced to implement all aspects of the School Development Plan.
  • Children and Learning – this committee monitors and evaluates the standards of learning and teaching and the impact that the school makes on children’s progress and attainment for all pupils. The committee monitors how the school ensures that we achieve our national and locally set targets and the targets that we set ourselves.
