How is the Governing Body Structured?

Each governor has a delegated area of school life that they are responsible for:

Mr Andrew Morris = SEN & Safeguarding

Mrs Chris Jones = Curriculum

Mr Godfrey Calcutt = Curriculum

Mrs Bec Bennett = Early Years & Health & Safety

Mr Christian Clarke = Pupil Premium

Mrs Lindsay Nelson = Parent / Carer Liaison

Mrs Sharon Godiff-Puldio & Andrew Hardman = SIAM & RE

Once a term, a governor morning, afternoon or day will be carried out in each of these areas.

These days consist of the governor being visible around school, talking to staff and pupils, looking at data, observing books and assessing the effectiveness of this area of school life.
