Structure and remit of the Governing body

School governors are people who want to make a positive contribution to children’s education.  They come from all sections of the community and all walks of life.  Some governors are elected by parents and staff, some are appointed by the Governing body, the Local Authority or the North Tyneside Learning Trust.  The Governing body has 3 core strategic functions:

Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction
Holding the Headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils
Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent

The Chair of Governors is Mr Tim Noble and the Vice Chair is Ms Leanne Clay.

The Governing body consists of eighteen Governors and we currently have four Co-opted Governor vacancies.
