Home > ABOUT THE SCHOOL > Governors


The Full Governing Body meets each term and each Committee also meets termly. The Committees of Governors that meet are as follows:

Curriculum Committee

This Committee reviews changes to the curriculum, examines the performance of all the departments and analyses the school’s work towards the targets that are set each year. Pupil progress throughout a pupil’s time at the school is a key activity. Pupil performance is analysed formally several times during the year and the Committee has reports of their progress presented to them.

Staffing Committee

Committee ensures that plans are in place to replace staff who are leaving. It also evaluates and regulates the staffing structure that the school has and ensures that the finances are in place to maintain acceptable levels of class sizes, whilst ensuring specialist teaching in all areas. The Committee also oversees the welfare of the staff.

Pupil Welfare & Discipline Committee

Committee meetings focus on pupil voice with the issues highlighted by the School Council in their regular meetings. The Committee’s aim is to ensure the welfare and safety of the pupils and also ensure their full involvement in their learning throughout their years in our school.

Finance & Premises Committee

This group of Governors considers the School Budget and how the different elements of the high school are financed. The School Budget comes to us at the end of March. We plan for the following financial year and ensure that all plans are relayed to the school community via the School Development Plan. Most of the budget is taken up with staffing costs and the Committee is very keen to ensure that we can maintain appropriate levels of staffing in our school. On the buildings side of its remit the Committee considers plans both short and long term to improve the quality of provision we offer to our pupils.
