The full Governing Body, Teaching and Learning Committee and Resources Committee all meet once a term. Additional meetings are scheduled when required including an annual training session for all governors.

We have strong links with our Governing Body. Governors are linked to specific classes and make visits to the class to see first hand how the class operates and how teaching and learning is administered. Governors are also linked to subject areas and visit the school to speak to subject leaders to find out how teaching and learning is improving. We value the time and commitment given by our Governors.
