In September all governors completed the Register of Pecuniary Interests.

No governors currently have a governance role in another school.

Updated March 2018

Governing Body meetings

As of September 2017 the governing body structure has been revised to ensure maximum efficiency and knowledge.  All governors are expected to attend all six meetings throughout the year.  In addition we also have a small resources committee which meets when required to meet the needs as defined in the terms of reference.  

We also now have two co-chairs - a strategy employed to provide maximum support for the Head teacher, SLT and the governing body.  The introduction of a co-chair also ensures optimum succession planning.
