Structure and Meetings of the Governing Body


There are different types of governors and the normal minimum term is four years. After this time a governor can offer to stand to be re-elected for a further term.

Parents: Provide a parent viewpoint but do not formally represent all parents' views.

Co-opted: Provide particular experience and/or links that will benefit the school.

Local Authority: Provide a WSCC view.

Staff:  Provides a staff viewpoint but do not formally represent all staff views.

The Full Governing Body meets at least 6 times a year and there are also 3 sub-committees who meet termly.  These are the Resources & Premises Committee, the Quality & Standards Committee and the Staffing Committee. These committees all report back to the Full Governing Body. Find the membership of each committee here. 

Every year a Chair and Vice-Chair for the Full Governing Body is elected from amongst the non-staff members of the Governing Body.

Anyone can attend a Full Governors' meeting on request. Agenda and Minutes of meetings are available on request from the school.
