“The governing body is forward-thinking in its approach to governance.” Ofsted March 2017
The Governing Body works closely with the Headteacher in the management and leadership of the school to ensure that the school continues to maintain its high standards as well as improve and develop further. The full Governing Body meets twice each term, with additional meetings for committees.
Minutes of previous meetings are available to download below or hardcopies can be requested from the office.
Our report to parents from the Resources Committee is available here: Resources Committee Report to Parents November 2020
