The Governors work closely with the Headteacher and staff in order to ensure that the school’s objectives can be met. The Governing Body consists of the Headteacher, parents, members nominated by the Local Authority, Community Governors and representatives of the teaching and support staff of the school. Meetings of the full Governing Body are usually held every half term and sub-committees also meet regularly. Parent Governors are appointed as a result of nominations and elections in which all parents are eligible to stand and vote. One of their particular responsibilities is to provide a viewpoint from that of ‘parent’ to the Governing Body. If Parents wish to contact a Governor they may write, in confidence, addressed c/o the school.
