The Governing Body has responsibilities in finance, employment and health and safety and is committed to school improvement, driving forward student progress and achievement, linking to the whole School Improvement Plan.  We have produced an information sheet about the role, and about our expectations of our Governors. 

Governors are also required to register and declare business interests that might relate to their duties.  The principle behind this arrangement is that neither governors, headteachers, or their spouses, partners, businesses or employers, should benefit financially from the involvement of governors or headteachers in decisions taken by a governing body or one of its committees.  The Register of Interests for our current Governors is set out below:
