The Governing Body meets at least once every term and Governors have responsibility for the running of the school, in consultation with the headteacher.
There are normally 4 types of Governors, Parent, Staff, Community (co-opted) and Local Authority.
The Headteacher is responsible to the Governors for the organisation, management and discipline of the school. Governors are elected to serve for a period of four years and the election process is managed in accordance with agreed LEA procedures.
At each termly meeting the Headteacher presents a detailed report to governors. Attendance at these meetings is recorded and shown below. Committee meetings also take place termly for Resources and Standards and Effectiveness.
