Committee Remit

Some of the responsibilities of the governing body have been delegated to committees whose strategic objectives are as follows:

Resources committee

To ensure the financial stability of the School and Children’s Centre, including the effective and efficient management of financial resources such as Pupil Premium funding. This will lead to the excellent deployment of staff and resources to the benefit of all pupil groups.


Curriculum and Achievement committee

To hold the headteacher to account by monitoring and challenging of data and other evidence to ensure that all pupils fulfil their capability and potential by making rapid and sustained progress throughout all year groups from their baseline across the curriculum including English and Maths with the ultimate aim of all children achieving their individual attainment and progress goals. 


Children, Families and Community

To ensure the school knows the families it serves well and has effective and robust systems in place to ensure good attendance and engagement which will have a positive impact on the well being of all stakeholders.

If you have any feedback you would like to give the governing body or have any questions regarding the strategic direction of the school please contact the Chair or Vice Chair of Governors via email:

All Governors are allocated a year group, which we visit during our monitoring visits.


"Governors fulfil their roles effectively. They have an accurate understanding of the school’s work and use this well to ensure that the right decisions are made."
