The Governing Body

So What Do We Do?


While the Head Teacher has overall responsibility for the management and running of the school on a day to day basis, the governors are responsible for matters of policy. We meet to discuss areas such as finance, personnel, the curriculum, premises and maintenance. Additionally, there are separate committees: All committees meet at least one a term ; The personnel committee reviews and monitors staff and deals with matters relating to all school staff; the curriculum committee monitors how the curriculum is taught, evaluated and resourced and the general purposes committee looks at health and saftey, new building projects, refurbishment and maintenance.


Governors spend time in school speaking to leaders, staff and children.  They use this time to monitor how the school is performing with regards to the key actions in the School Development Plan, as well as providing support and challenge to leaders.  Governors visit individually and on termly Governor Days. 


The governors welcome feedback from parents, pupils and staff. If there are any particular issues or areas of interest which you feel the governors should be aware of then please let us know - it's your school and we're your governors - let's talk! Drop a note into the school office for the attention of Pete Fuggle.  Your parent governors, Pete Fuggle, Alison Brown and Sarah Adamson are often on the playground - please come and speak to us in person.
