As well as the Full Governing Body meetings we have a number of Committees which are the main conduit for the work of the Governors. Our Committees are:

  • Teaching & Learning
  • Premises
  • Finance/Personnel
  • Admissions
  • Audit

Details of which Governors are on which Committee is given in the Governor Information section below, along with Terms of Reference for each Committee.


The Full Governing Body meets twice during the Autumn term, and once for Spring and Summer terms. Our Committees meet at least termly to discuss particular matters. Dates of our Committee meetings are also given in the documents section below.


During each academic year, Governors will conduct monitoring visits to see how the overall performance of the school is doing – these are done through our Governor Days and Link Visits. During these visits, Governors get the chance to speak to staff and children and see the school in action. Our Governors are also invited to attend a range of school events including Parent Evenings, school productions and celebratory events etc.
