Governors are encouraged to visit the school on a regular basis to take part in assemblies, School Council meetings and classroom activities so that they become familiar with the day to day workings of the school as well as attending their committee meetings.  They also monitor the school's finance; health & safety; quality of curriculum; behaviour and attitudes to learning; personal development and leadership and management.  They also have a large amount of responsibility and are held accountable to Ofsted for their strategic role in school.

 

The Register of Business interests currently shows no business interests, no relationships between governors and members of staff, neither are any governors currently serving governors at other educational establishments.
