Welcome to Our Governors’ Section

The Governing body, of the school, is drawn from many aspects of the community. The Governors have responsibility for the overall management of the school, acting within the framework set by national legislation, the policies of the local education authority of Gloucestershire, and SIAMS.

At our school there are 5 types of governors that reflect all those involved in the school community:

Foundation Governor – The role of a Foundation Governor is to ensure that the Christian ethos of the school is maintained and creatively developed and they are appointed by the Church,

Co-Opted Governor – Co-Opted Governors are appointed by the governing body and drawn from the local community.

Local Authority Governor – These types of Governors are appointed by the governing body.

Parent Governor – The parent Governors are elected by parents of children attending the school and usually serve for 4 years.

Staff Governor – The role of these governors is to represent the staff at the school and including the Headteacher.

The full Governing body meets 5 times each academic year. And we host sub-committee meetings to provide focus on specific areas from maintenance to budget and pupil/ staff well-being.
