Governors

The school Governors are a group of people who make decisions about how our school is run.  They have legal duties, powers and responsibilities and meet in school at least once a term.

 

Governors are appointed to help:

  • Decide what is taught
  • Set standards of behaviour
  • Interview and select staff
  • Make decisions regarding the budget
 
School Governors are:
  • Parents
  • Members of the church
  • Local Education Authority Representatives
  • Community Representatives
  • Teachers at the school
  • Non-teaching members of school
Governors have equal voting rights and equal status in the work of the Governing Body.
