Welcome to the Governors' section!

 

The Governing Body has the overall responsibility for the effectiveness of the school, while the day to day running is the responsibility of the Headteacher.

 We are a supportive Governing Body, committed to improvement in all areas of the school.  We work closely with the Headteacher and staff to develop the strategies necessary to achieve our aims and monitor progress.  Every governor sits on at least 1 sub-committee.

 The full Governing Body meets 4 times a year where all governors are expected to attend.  The Curriculum Standards and School Improvement committee meets 3 times a year as does the Finance and Premises sub-committee.  We play an active role in the school and undergo regular training in order to keep up with current issues in the education world.  In collaboration with staff, we form and review clear policies which set out how the school should be run.  All policies are available in various formats from the school office should you prefer your own copy.

 Whilst we ensure that all statutory provision is adhered to, all decisions that we make have children at the very core.

 The Full Governing Board are:

Gillian Pratt- (Chair)

Mark Garrett - (Vice Chair)

Pam Evans - (Head Teacher)

Natasha Patrick - (Teacher Governor)

John Andrews

Ken Pratt

Tim Awmack
