A message from Ms Sue Orme – Chair of Governing Board
On behalf of the Board of Governors, I welcome this opportunity to briefly introduce you to the work the Governing Body undertakes to ensure that your child (ren) will receive a sound primary school education. The Governing Body has a range of powers and duties laid down by various Education Acts:-·
- Setting targets and promoting high standards of educational achievement
- Setting the strategic framework within which the school operates
- Management of the school’s delegated budget
- Ensuring that the curriculum for the school is balanced and broadly based
Governors discharge the above responsibilities, together with many others, through a Governing Body meeting each term. These formal meetings are supplemented by a series of committee meetings dealing with more specific issues. A number of Governors also have responsibilities for specific areas within the school such as Safeguarding, Inclusion and Religious Education.
Governors adopt, review and monitor a range of policies that govern the operation of the school including Health and Safety, Behaviour, Curriculum and Performance Management.
