The Governing Body meets at least once every term and Governors have responsibility for the running of the school, in consultation with the headteacher.
There are normally 4 types of Governors, Parent, Staff, Co-opted and Local Authority.
The Headteacher is responsible to the Governors for the organisation, management and discipline of the school. Governors are elected to serve for a period of four years and the election process is managed in accordance with agreed LEA procedures.
At each termly meeting the Headteacher presents a detailed report to governors. Attendance at these meetings is recorded and shown below. Committee meetings also take place termly for Buildings and Grounds, Curriculum, Staffing and Finance. The Standards and Effectiveness Committee meet monthly and consists of the Chairs of the other committees.
The Chair of Governors is Mr Adrian Toulmin, a local businessman, who has been connected with the school for nearly 23 years. All three of his daughters came through the school.
