Governors

Governing Body Chair: Christine Bish                     Vice Chair: Ian Scott

The Governing Body takes a strategic role, acts as a critical friend to the school and is accountable for its decisions. It sets aims and objectives, reviews, agrees and monitors policies, targets and priorities and is accountable for the efficient and effective use of its funding. The Full Governing Body meets at least three times a year. There are a number of Committees which meet regularly and to which the Governing Body can delegate certain responsibilities. The Governing Body can and does establish ad-hoc committees as the need arises made up of suitably experienced governors, in order to deliver against deadlines with which it is faced.

The Committee structure is as follows:

Standards Chair: Martyn Taylor

The Standards and Personnel Committee, in collaboration with the staff, look at raising standards. The committee gathers information about how the curriculum is taught, evaluated and resourced. It reviews policies, ensures that pupils with Special Educational Needs have their needs met and that appropriate provision is made available for all pupils, including those on the Pupil Premium Register. It makes appropriate recommendations to the Finance and Premises Committee in relation to staffing.

Finance Chair: Roger Stokoe

The Finance and Premises Committee has responsibility for providing guidance and assistance to the Executive Headteacher and Governors in all matters relating to budgeting and finance. It provides support and guidance for the Governing Body and the Executive Headteacher on all matters relating to the maintenance and development of the premises and grounds, including Health and Safety.

Performance Management Chair: Ian Scott

This Committee works with the school’s Education Adviser to ensure that the Performance Management Review of the Executive Headteacher is implemented, effective and reviewed annually.

Pay Review Chair: Ian Bell

The role of the Pay Committee is to implement the School’s Pay and Performance Policy. The Committee has fully delegated powers and consists of three members of the Governing Body but does not include the Chair of Governors.
