Our Coronavirus risk assessment is under frequent review and is shared with all the staff when updated. The school has fewer than 50 staff in total and therefore this information does not need to be published here.
The Governing Body meets as a full body at least once each term. There are two permanent sub-committees; the Resources Committee (dealing with finance, personnel, premises, health and safety and similar matters) and the Strategy and Standards Committee (dealing with curriculum, pupil progress and achievement, pupil premium, pupil welfare and safeguarding, marketing and the overall strategy of the school. The committees are currently chaired by: Resources - Ben Leslie; Strategy & Standards - Ben Leslie.
Other committees and/or working parties are formed as the need arises, e.g. for admissions, staff pay, grievances, disciplinary matters and the relevant appeals committees.
Our school has a total of fourteen governors all of whom act in a voluntary capacity:

As a Church (aided) School, we have a responsibility for maintaining and improving our school buildings and we are helped with a grant from the Government for 90% of the costs. This means that we have to contribute 10% ourselves. We do this by asking all parents to contribute to the "Governors' Fund" each year. A leaflet about the Fund can be seen here.The current contribution is £30 per child per year which works out at just £2.50 per month
