The Governing Body works closely with the Headteacher to ensure the school runs smoothly, efficiently and provides the best value for money.
Governors come from all walks of life: many are linked with St. James's church, while others have backgrounds in education.
The Governing body meets formally once each term, and the various committees meet prior to these meetings to look at school data, spending, staffing and the implementation of the school development plan.
