Under new Government legislation all school Governing Bodies were reconstituted by September 2015.
Under this new legislation, the Governing Body is slimmed down, but must have the appropriate skills to fulfil the role of a Governing Body effectively. It should not be smaller than 7 members and must include: at least 2 Parent Governors; the Headteacher; one and only one Staff Governor; one and only one Local Authority Governor. On top of the above 5 ‘Core Governors’, a school can appoint as many co-opted Governors as deemed necessary.
Our Current Governing Body
Mrs M Matthews – Staff Governor
Mrs A Milne – Local Authority Governor
Mrs V Riley – Parent Governor (Co-chair)
Mrs R Sanderson – Parent Governor
Miss P Sharma - Headteacher
Mrs J Harmon
Dr G Parkinson ( Co- chair)
Mrs A Sowerby
Mrs P Spearman
Mr M Watson
Parent Governors are elected by the parents of the School and are able to hold office for up to four years. If Parent Governor elections are to be held, all parents will be informed, invited to stand for election and able to vote. The minutes of all Governing Body meetings are available in the school office.
