Governance

The Governing Board forms an important link between the school and the community.  The board is split into two committees that meet every term and report back to the Full Governing Board.

Governing Board Chair: Amanda Malam

Achievements & Standards Committee

Committee Chair & Governing Board Vice-Chair: Mark Parsons

The Achievement & Standards Committee (A&S) is responsible for ensuring that the school meets the needs of every child and promotes high standards of academic and personal development.

Resources Committee

Committee Chair: Arthur Moran

The Resources Committee is responsible for establishing, reviewing and agreeing the school’s proposals for any financial issues.  It also ensures the health and safety and development of the school premises and ensures efficient use of utilities.  The committee also reviews and agrees staffing provision.

The Governing Board structure chart can be found using the link at the end of this page.
