Structure and Remit of the Governing Body and Committees

The role of the governing body is strategic. The Department for Education’s Governance Handbook identifies three core functions for governing bodies:

  • ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction
  • holding the head teacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils, and the performance management of staff
  • overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent

Members of the governing body are appointed based on their skills in order to contribute to effective governance and the success of the school.


To contact any member of your Governing Body, please contact the school on the main school number in the first instance.


You can view the members of the Governing Body here. 

Parent/Staff Governors

Parent Governors are elected from within the parent body of the school when there is a vacancy. Any vacancies will be advertised on the school website.
