About the Governors

Governors

 

The school governing body consists of 10 members and since we became an academy, some of its duties have been taken over by the Flying High Board of Directors.  

 

The full governing body meets once per term and is responsible for ensuring the Academy fulfills its statutory obligations and that the pupils at the school are receiving a high quality education.

 

Our governors are:

The majority of governor decision making takes place in two main subcommittees that meet once per term prior to Full Governing Body meetings. Governors appointed post December 2016 have yet to be appointed to their subcommittees.  

 

Our two main subcommittees are:

 

Pupils  & Personnel 

Finance, Strategic & General Purposes

This committee is responsible for shaping decisions about personnel needs and the best use of personnel to support the children at the school.  It also makes decisions about admission arrangements and other pupil related matters.  

This committee is responsible for the strategic development of the school as well as the school budget and the buildings. It makes decisions on how to make best use of its resources and makes informed decisions on how the school can best move forward.

The committee members are:

 

Margaret Wheeler - Chair

Jeff McColl

Claire Lindsay
