Our Governors

Our Governing Body is responsible for the strategic direction of the school. Governors appoint the senior staff, make decisions about the school's budget, and discuss and approve school policy documents. Governors also ensure the school provides the highest standard of education for every child. 

Our Governing Body is made up of elected parents, an elected staff member, the headteacher, a local authority governor approved by Brighton and Hove Council, and co-opted governors appointed by the Governing Body. We hold two full meetings per term and additional meetings of the Resources, and Curriculum and Standards, Sub-Committees. 

We work closely with the headteacher and her staff team and make regular visits to the school.  We also come in to spend time getting to know the pupils, helping them to understand who we are and what we do, and to attend assemblies and other events. We take part in training and meetings arranged by Brighton and Hove City Council and we also meet the Ofsted inspectors and other agencies.

Like all school governors, we are unpaid volunteers who give a lot of time and energy to our duties. We try to represent the views of all those with an interest in the school, and, like the staff team, we always welcome your feedback and suggestions for further improving our school.

Anyone aged 18 or over can become a school or college governor. No specialist qualifications are needed and people from many different backgrounds volunteer for the role. Enthusiasm, commitment and an interest in education are the most important qualities. You don’t need to have a family member attending the school to become a governor.
