The Governing Body meet at least once a term to discuss strategic decisions and school improvement. There are several committees which meet regularly. The Governing Body includes elected representatives of parents and teachers as well as representatives of the local authority, community groups and the Diocese. Governors hold office for four years. Governors can only act together, they cannot act individually. All of our governors are allocated a class which they are paired with; this enables governors to have a hands-on understanding of the day to day ethos and values of the school.
