Due to positive Covid-19 cases in the school community, some pupils need to self-isolate. All pupils who have been sent home to isolate must get a PCR test. Pupils must continue to isolate, even if the PCR test is negative.

  • Some Y7 and Y9 pupils return on 21st June 2021
  • Some Y7 / Y8 / Y10 pupils return on 22nd June 2021
  • Some Y7 pupils must isolate until 25th June.
  • Some Y9 pupils to return on 28th June

All lessons for pupils in self-isolation will be on MS Teams from 15th June.

Governors

The Governors have a wide range of responsibilities for the School, including its overall values, the School Development Plan, the budget and staff appointments.

We are currently reviewing our model of Governance and a revised structure will be available shortly.


Governors work closely with the Headteacher and Staff and maintain regular links with all the main departments and areas of School life.

We currently have vacancies on our governing body – we are looking for four Community Governors and two Parent Governors. Please get in touch with us if you would like to apply.

Their formal meetings include a Building Committee, Finance Committee, Personnel Committee and the Full Governors’ Business Meeting which is held once a term.

Apart from occasional confidential items, the Main Business Meeting is open for parents to attend as observers. However, it would be helpful if parents wishing to attend the Main Governors’ Meeting would inform the Clerk to the Governors beforehand so that additional seating can be provided.

WHAT GOVERNORS DO

There are three main reasons why governors are necessary:

  • They make sure the school is run according to the needs and wishes of the local community.
  • They support, promote and protect the interests of the school, its pupils and staff.
  • They are a visible form of accountability.

School governors come from a variety of backgrounds. They are not expected to be experts in educational matters. That’s the responsibility of the headteacher and the teaching staff of the school.

The role of the school governor and governing body is:

  • to take a strategic overview of school related issues;
  • to set a broad framework within which the headteacher can work;
  • concerned with the general oversight of the conduct of the school.

Please note: The headteacher is responsible for the organisation and management within the school.

As a school governor we are expected to:

  • Work as a member of the governing body for the best interests of the school;
  • Attend the regular meetings and special meetings of the governing body;
  • Serve on committees which deal with the governing body’s legal obligations;
  • Become familiar with general educational issues and developments;
  • Take an interest in school activities;
  • Promote the school within the local community;
  • Commit time to the duties and responsibilities of a governor;

We are involved in:

  • staff appointments and discipline
  • pupil discipline
  • the school curriculum
  • the financial management of the school
  • school development plan and action plan
  • health and safety matters
  • governor training.

GOVERNING BODY TERMS OF OFFICE
