The governing board is responsible for the strategic direction of the school, providing challenge and support and holding the school to account. Governors work together with the school on planning, developing and scrutinising policies and keeping the school under review. They are not involved in the day to day management of the school, unless there are specific problems requiring governor intervention.
Governors are recruited from the parent body and the community for their expertise and interest in the school, including the Thomas Bullock Trust. In addition, there is a clerk to the governing body who provides administrative support and advice.
