The Governing Body meets three times each year. Much of the work of the Governing Body is done by committees which meet at least every term (three times in the year). We have the following committees.

  • Health and Safety – Provides support and guidance on all matters relating to the maintenance and development of the premises and grounds, including Health and Safety (Chair: Brian McNeil)
  • Standards and Effectiveness – Monitors all aspects of the school’s work around pupil attainment and progress (Chair: Jason Taylor);
  • Finance – Monitors the income and expenditure throughout the year of all delegated and devolved funds against the annual budget plan (Chair: to be appointed at next meeting).
