In order to strategically lead and manage our school, the Governing Body is structured into three groups:
Within each group, Governors focus on different areas of responsibility, working to the strengths, skills and knowledge base of the respective governors. Each Group of Governors is led by an identified Governor, to ensure clarity of direction.
The different groups meet at different intervals, with some having regular, half-termly meetings, and others meeting as and when necessary in relation to the school calendar.
The Groups are organised as below:
Academic Performance - termly meetings
Lead Governor: Katie Gravil
Group members: Janet Adams, Andy Parker, David Sykes, Val Greene and Anita Huckle
Financial Resources and General Purpose - four times a year
