Our LGBs are usually made up of 9 governors;
- 2 staff members, one of whom is the Headteacher, one is an elected staff member
- 2 parents, elected by the parent body
- 5 Community governors, 1 of whom is usually appointed by the Trust
Local Governing Bodies usually meet 6 times a year to consider a wide variety of issues including the school vision and values, school development and improvement, safeguarding and the wellbeing of pupils and staff. Governors also have an oversight of school finances, premises (including Health and Safety) and personnel.
Governors are regularly welcomed into school to monitor its work to achieve its strategic priorities, ambition for excellence and to build relationships with the pupils and staff to better understand what makes the school work, how to continue to improve and how they can deliver the best possible outcomes for all its pupils.
