Governing Body

"The governing body contributes fully to the vision, planning and checking of the school’s work.  Senior leaders submit clear and timely information about the school, including about students’ progress and the quality of teaching, which is scrutinised and challenged by the governing body.  Governors also regularly visit during the school day to meet with staff and students. The governing body’s detailed knowledge of the school enables it effectively to hold school leaders, including the headteacher, to account. All governors receive regular training on issues such as safeguarding and regulations regarding teachers’ pay and performance. They carefully monitor the use of the pupil premium and Year 7 catch-up funding to make sure that it is used effectively. They are involved in decisions about the management of teachers’ performance and teachers’ pay and how pay increases are related to students’ progress. They know what the school is doing to tackle any underperformance. Governors make sure that financial resources are effectively managed.  Clear records and documentation relating to the input of the governing body are maintained.  Governors work to see that safeguarding meets statutory requirements."  Ofsted 2013.
