The Governors of the school are a representative group of people who are appointed to be responsible for various aspects of the school. Since the introduction of Local Management of Schools, these have included overseeing the financial administration of the school, curriculum issues, personnel and sites and buildings. Their work is conducted through meetings every term of all Governors, sub committees and occasionally of working parties.

Dates and attendance of the main meetings for the last school year are given below. Copy minutes of ratified Full Governors Meetings can be obtained on request.

The Head Teacher of the school presents written reports and strives to ensure that Governors are kept fully informed of the school work, changes in educational practice and, with the assistance of the Clerk, the law, in order that they can effectively carry out their responsibilities.
The Governing Body is made up of representatives from the Church (Foundation governors), Lincolnshire County Council (LEA governors), parents (Parent Governors), teaching staff, (Staff Governors) and the community (Co-opted Governors).
Foundation governors are elected by the Parochial Church Council from its electoral roll; LEA governors are appointed by LCC (in some cases from political party nominations); Parent governors (for each site) are elected by ballots of parents of children at the school; Staff Governors volunteer and Co-opted governors are appointed by the Governing Bodies.
Whenever there are vacancies there will be work in progress to fill these and appointments will be confirmed on the website as soon as possible.


Sub Committees

Each Governor joins a Sub Committee which meets regularly and reports to the Governing Body. The sub committees carry out the majority of the work of the Governing Body. They have specific functions and report on a regular basis to the main Governing Body. Each committee has Terms of Reference, which set out the responsibilities and the amount of decision-making authority they hold.
In addition individual Governors have responsibility for developing their expertise and understanding of the role of particular issues in school. There are named Governors with responsibility for:

Each governor is encouraged to visit regularly. This helps to give governors a ‘face’ in the school, to see teaching first hand and to build a relationship with the children.
School governors provide support and direction to our school and bring together views from the Parish Church, school staff, parents, the Local Authority and the local community.
