As well as complying with its statutory requirements, our Governing Body has chosen to adopt successive editions of the National Governance Association Code of Conduct (without amendment) and to abide by the seven Nolan Principles of Public Life as set out in that code. The code provides part of a framework for excellence in governance by clearly setting out the expectations on and commitment required from every serving governor, thereby enabling the Governing Body to properly carry out its work within school community and the wider community beyond.
Our Governors: Their roles and standing committee membership
In October 2017 we reconstituted our Governing Body to reduce the number of seats on the board from 18 to 14. Following that the composition of the board appears below with individual committee responsibilities shown. In addition to the meetings of the Full Governing Body, all governors are required to attend the curriculum committee as members, which reflects the importance of this committee to the core function of governance.
