Governors

The Governing Body

What we do

Governors make the key decisions about how the school is run.  The full governing body meets six times a year; sub-committees meet as necessary.

The Governing Body
Name Post
Miss Abigail Hodge Associate Member
Mrs Michele Weeks Clerk
Miss Caroline Harding Co-opted Governor
Mr David Lewis Co-opted Governor

Mrs Tracy Serle Head Teacher
Mr Robert Brown Parent Governors
Mrs Donna Whinham Parent Governors

Mr Nadeem Shah LEA Governor 
Ms Caroline Jankowska Co-opted Governor
Mrs Harriet Williams Co-opted Governor

Governors are appointed to help:

  • Evaluate the effectiveness of the school
  • Provide and support the strategic direction of the school
  • Decide what is taught
  • Set and support standards of behaviour
  • Interview and select staff
  • Decide on how the school budget is spent
  • Support and judge the performance of the Headteacher

School Governors have legal duties, powers and responsibilities.  They must act together, they cannot act individually.

School Governors are:

  • Parents
  • Teachers at the school
  • Local council representatives
  • Community representatives

Parent Governors are elected by the parents and serve, as do all Governors, for four years. They bring the views of parents to the Governing Body, but they speak and act as individuals; they should not be thought of as delegates of the parents. They have equal status in the work of the Governing Body, with full voting rights.  The current Chair of Governors is Parent Governor Robert Brown – he can be contacted via the school office.
