The Governing Body is a committed and hard working group of people who have enormous responsibility – even though they volunteer their services freely.
The Governing Body meets on a regular basis to discuss the management and strategic direction of the school.
There is a termly meeting of the full Board of Governors and meetings of sub groups for specific issues (e.g. finance, staff appointments etc.) as required. The Governors have many responsibilities laid down by law. They are responsible for all staff appointments, control and disposition of the school budget, the secular and religious curriculum and admission of pupils, as well as many other duties including the publication of information about the school.
The majority of our Governors are appointed by the Diocese of Nottingham; one is appointed by Stockport Local Authority, two are directly elected by the parents and one is directly elected by the staff. The Head Teacher is a member of the Governing Body as of right.
