Our Governors

 'The governors provide very good support, and know about the quality of teaching and pupils’ performance. They visit the school regularly to check on its work. Governors know what the school is doing to manage teachers’ performance, and how it rewards good teachers and tackles any underperformance. They make sure that safeguarding arrangements meet nationalrequirements to keep pupils safe, and that the pupil premium benefits eligible pupils.'

The Elliot Foundation Academies Trust is the education charity that runs the school and is responsible for the governance of the school. The Covid-19 Scheme of Delegation sets out the delegated powers during the public health emergency with local governance suspended at the present time. In line with the re-instigation of all national accountability measures local governance will resume with a focus on the breadth and depth of curriculum offer and the extent to which context is taken into account alongside the well being of pupils and staff.
