Local Governing Body

How we work?

We aim for as few formal meetings as possible, preferring to support the school through active involvement rather than through sitting in committee rooms.  Under the new Governance Model agreed by Scholars' Education Trust, the full Governing Body meets six times a year - generally for no more than two hours.  Certain key tasks provide the focus for our discussions and as a minimum each meeting focuses on a core topic as follows:

  • Analysis of results in external examinations
  • Setting targets for the year
  • Approving the Academy Development Plan
  • Approving the Annual Budget for recommendation to the Trust

A wide variety of other subjects are considered at each meeting, including the Headteacher's report, the approval of all major policies which underpin the running of the school and regular updates on School Governance.

Most Governors, in addition to sitting on the main Governing Body, undertake visits to the school for other reasons. We also try to attend public events,such as secondary transfer evening, school play performances, music concerts, the annual prize-giving ceremony and sports events. In addition, individual Governors take a special interest in specific areas of school activity, such as Safeguarding, SEN and the More Able Children programme.

Most queries about the management of SRA and the progress of any individual child should be directed in the first instance to the school itself but the Chair of Governors/Clerk to the Governors will be happy to answer any more general questions, particularly in relation to the role of the Governing Body.

Letters for the attention of the Chair of the Governing Body should be sent to the school.
