The Governing Body
The school has a Governing Body which consists of Governors, elected parents and an elected member of staff. The Full Governing Body meets a minimum of six times per academic year (once per term). Our Governors take responsibility for the strategic direction of the school. They hold the Head Teacher to account for standards in the school and offer guidance and support in all areas of school life.
Additionally Governors have specific areas of responsibility and these include Health & Safety, SEN, Pupil Premium, Safeguarding and Subject areas in order to monitor the progress the school is making.
Governors work closely with the Headteacher, the Senior Leadership Team and Subject Leaders.
Recent minutes of meetings of the Full Governing Body are available to read and a folder of these is located at the school. Please contact the Clerk if you would like to access.
If you have any feedback or wish to contact the governors directly about an issue, please email the clerk CBamford@educ.somerset.gov.uk
The Governing Body of our school consists of:
2 Local Education Authority representatives
4 Community representatives,
4 Parent representatives,
1 teacher representative,
1 support staff representative,
1 Associate member and a Clerk.
List of Governors
The County Council relies heavily upon the Governing Body to bring to its attention matters of concern (including the application of the Authority’s and Government’s policies) and to make suggestions which will help to support the Headteacher and Staff in their work at school.
