Meet the Governors

‘Senior leaders, including governors, have successfully built upon the outcomes of the previous inspection,  particularly in raising the quality of teaching and the curriculum.’  

Ofsted, September 2011 

Welcome to our Governors’ section. 

The role of the governing body is a strategic one, its key functions are to:

  • set the aims and objectives for the school
  • set the policies for achieving those aims and objectives
  • set the targets for achieving those aims and objectives
  • monitor and evaluate the progress the school is making towards achievement of its aims and objectives
  • be a source of challenge and support to the headteacher

 

Our current Governing body is made up as follows:

 

  • Dr Alan Norley - Chair of Governors - Local Authority Governor
  • Mr Roger Spicer - Vice Chair of Governors - Foundation Governor
  • Mr Derrick Howard - Co-Opted Governor
  • Mr Mark Ellis - Co-Opted Governor
  • Mr Chris Legg - Co-Opted Governor
  • Mrs Sue Sweet, Headteacher - Staff Governor
  • Mr David Lemon, Deputy Headteacher - Co-Opted Governor
  • Mrs Pauline Aitken - Staff Governor
  • Parent Governor Vacancies x 2
  • Foundation Governor Vacancies x 1

 

All of our governors attend Full Governing body meetings which take place three times a year.  In addition to this governors have a link to individual classes, subject oversight and sit on one or more of the following sub committees:

  • Finance, Buildings and Grounds
  • Pupil Progress
  • Teaching and Learning
  • Pastoral

 

Some of our Governors have specific responsibilities for statutory duties such as Safeguarding, SEND and Health and Safety.

If you are interested in becoming a school governor please speak to one of the existing governors or get in contact with the school.
