Full Governing Body

The full Governing Body meets termly to discuss the whole school strategy and developments.  As per The Governance Handbook, there are 3 core functions of the board:

  • 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 performance management of staff.
  • Overseeing the financial performance of the organisation and making sure its money is well spent

To review specific aspects of school life in more depth, the various Committees provide feedback on their delegated areas of responsibility such as accomplishments, and areas of improvement and detail any decisions the committee has made.

From September 2023 we will also have a Resource Committee and Learning and Curriculum Committee

In addition to these Committees, special committees called 'panels' convene when needed. For example, a Complaint and Grievances Panel meets as required to hear cases relating to discipline within the school, complaints, or appeals from parents. Panel members are usually selected depending on the circumstance and members' experience.

Finance and Resources Committee
