Governing Body

Becoming a governor is a rewarding way to make a real contribution to the development of our children and young people. Governing bodies are increasingly professional so volunteers need not be experts in education as they will be able to contribute from their skills set, whatever that may be. For that reason we welcome expressions of interest from anyone who would like to find out more about being a school governor. Recruiting governors is largely based on an analysis of needs and vacancies arise from time to time. Governors attend six meetings of the full governing body in each school year as well as visiting the school to meet with staff, sit-in on lessons and talk with the children, and attend school productions.

It is a privilege to share this precious work in supporting the school community and all those who volunteer find great reward in it. In order to be effective, the governors, both corporately and individually, participate in training sessions.

Governors usually serve a four-year term on the governing body and may be elected or appointed to serve further terms of office. The school operates a circle model so there is only one committee.
