Welcome to the section of our website where you can find out more about the Governors and the work that they do.

Governors have an important role as a 'Critical Friend' to the school, working in partnership with the school community to help provide the best possible education for our pupils. This is achieved by:

- Setting the school's values, vision and strategic aims, agreeing plans and policies, and making creative use of resources.

- Monitoring and evaluating performance, acting as a critical friend to the Headteacher to support and challenge the Headteacher in managing the school.

- Ensuring that the school is accountable to the children and parents it serves, to its local community, to those who fund and maintain it, as well as to the staff it employs.

Categories of Governor

Local Authority (LA) Governor - nominated by Birmingham City Council.

Community Governor - a person appointed by the Governing Body who lives or works in the community served by the school

Parent Governors - are elected by and from the parents

Staff Governors - elected by and from the staff

Teacher Governors – representatives of the teaching staff

Committees

The responsibilities of the Governing body are shared between two main committees, each with a specific responsibility; Finance  Committee oversees the budget, staffing, strategy and resources and our Resources Committee is responsible for the working environment and health and safety on site. In addition, there are further committees which meet as and when the need arises;  Pay Committee, Discipline and Complaints. All committees report back to the main Governing body.
