THE GOVERNING BODY
The Governing Body of the School is responsible to the parents, the Richard Thornton Foundation (who own the school building), the Government, the Local Authority and the Diocese.
The main jobs of the Governing Body are:
- setting aims and policies
- ensuring all legal requirements are met
- monitoring standards of teaching and learning
- setting the budget
- interviewing and appointing staff
- acting as a link between the local community and the school
Our Governing Body is actively and enthusiastically involved in all aspects of the life of the school. All governors sit on the Full Governing Board.
Members sit on the Finance and Premises Committee, the Curriculum, Assessment and Teaching Committee (CAT), the Personnel Committee and the Communications Committee in addition to various teams such as the Faith Team and the Wellbeing Team.
One governor visits the school every half term, popping into lessons and talking to the children. Individual Governors have responsibility for different curriculum areas and meet and support their respective teachers twice a year. Governors also try to support the school by attendance at special events.
