The role of School Governor is demanding but very rewarding and is a good way to give back to your local community. Our school's governing board is responsible for working with the school to ensure that it delivers a good quality education. Together with the Headteacher, who is responsible for day-to-day leadership, they set the school’s aims and policies and monitor progress towards targets set.
Our Governors are an integral part of the school and you will see many of them around school during the year. We have termly Governors meetings with an agenda set by the TCLT board. We also hold interim meetings three times a year with an agenda set by the school.
As well as the usual full Governors meetings we have additional committee meetings which are attended by Governors allocated to specific areas of responsibility.
As we are part of the Tyne Community Learning Trust our Chair of Governors meets with the CEO regularly to discuss priorities. This is then fed into the Trust Board Meeting.
We have two Parent Governors and they serve a four year term. When vacancies occur all parents are informed and invited to submit nominations for vacant positions.
