Governing Body

The Governing Body are a group of officials who draw up policies and procedures and ensure the school is meeting its legal obligations in all aspects and areas. They meet at least once a term and question the school's data and performance along with financial regulation, staffing, attendance and provision for the community. 

The Governing Body also play a very important part in day to day life in school so take a look at the page 'Who Helps our School Family Grow' so you know who they are.
