We are very fortunate to have a very active, challenging and robust Governing Body. As we have recently converted to Academy Status they have become members of the Local Management Board.

The school Local Management Board is made up of Foundation Governors who are appointed by His Lordship the Bishop of Middlesbrough, three parent Governors, and two staff representatives.

The Governors meet officially each term to discuss the business of the school but they take a special interest in all school activities. Each area of the curriculum is managed by a member of the Governing Body. Governors visit the school regularly and are very aware of all aspects of the life of the school including pupil progress and the quality of the teaching. Minutes of all Local Management Board meetings are available for inspection, once they have been approved by Governors. Latest Minutes: Draft Minutes 12th October 2016

Through the termly meetings, the Governors discharge their legal obligations and, through the working of Sub-Committees, set the School Policies for the Head Teacher and staff to implement.
