Our Governing Body operates as a whole unit, we meet each half term to discuss matters relating to the effective and efficient running of our school. A Business meeting is held during the first half of each term, concentrating on policies, procedures and finance and a Development meeting during the second half of each term focuses on the improvement and development of the setting.  Some individual Governors have specialist responsibilities (see below); they have taken on these roles because they have expertise/ special interests in the area and they work closely with the appropriate staff and report back to the full Governing Body. All decisions are made by the full Governing Body after discussion and deliberation.
