The School’s Governing Body is responsible for the overall strategic direction of the school including the responsibility for the content of the curriculum particularly with regard to Health and Sex Education, the appointment of staff and control of the school finances.
Members of the governing body are either elected by parents and members of staff, co-opted by the governing body when they have a specific skill that they can bring to governance, or appointed by the local county and community councils.
All governors serve for a term of four years and are required to undertake some training, which can be done online, when they first join the governing body. All Governors are offered further training, and take advantage of the many courses run by the Education Achievement Service.
Each governor is a representative of a specific group, all of which have a direct role in the life of the school. Once appointed the governing body acts as a single organisation in the best interests of the school.
There are two meetings of the Governing Body each term held at the school.
