The Governing Body comprises of up to 8 community members appointed by the directors, up to 4 parent governors elected by parents, up to 2 staff governors elected by the staff, 1 ex-officio headteacher and a CEO.


The Governors has 3 key strategic functions:

  • Holding executive leaders to account for the educational performance of the organisation and it's pupils, and the performance management of staff

  • Overseeing the financial performance of the organisation and making sure it's money is well spent


The Board is not responsible for the day to day operation of the school – this is a matter for the headteacher who is accountable to the Governing Body.

Declarations of Interests 2019 / 2020

In September each year, governors and staff are required to complete a Declaration of Interests form. The Clerk to the Governors at the School prepares a formal report to the Governing Body confirming the extent of Governor compliance with this requirement and setting out details of all interests. For the year 2019/2020 there was 100% compliance. No interests were declared. The Register of Governor interests is available at the School for inspection on request to the Clerk.


The declarations show that no Governors have any direct indirect pecuniary or non-pecuniary interests other than the following:


Mrs L Braithwaite: sibling of CEO of EMET Trust

Nicole Atkinson: Partnership at GP Practice/Clinical Lead at Clinical Commissioning Group and Shareholder at aerospace business

No other interests declared.
