Governing Body

Governors collaborate with the school in its work to provide a challenging, safe and exciting learning    environment for all of our children. The Governing Body works with the Senior Leadership Team to establish the School Development Plan and approves this, the annual budget and internal policies. We ensure that our policies meet central and local authority requirements. We also monitor the implementation of our policies and we conduct appeals, senior staff appointments and consider serious disciplinary decisions. We abide by our Code of Conduct.

Our core purpose is;

  •      Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction
  •      Holding executive leaders to account for the educational performance of the organisation and its pupils,
         and the effective and efficient performance management of staff
  •      Overseeing the financial performance of the organisation and making sure its money is well spent

In addition to the full Governing Body meeting there are 4 separate committees which meet termly:

  •      The Quality of Education Committee which looks at aspects of teaching and learning 
  •      The Finance, Pay and Premises Committee which looks at the financial management of the school and its           premises
  •      The Swan Centre Committee which, jointly with Strand on the Green Infant School, manages the work of the       centre 
  •      The Safeguarding and Wellbeing Committee which looks at the health and wellbeing of the school
