Governing Body

The Full Governing Body meets at least once a term.

There are also committee meetings for Personal and Finance, Estates and Services and Curriculum.

Governors are appointed to help:

  • Decide what is taught in school
  • Set standards of attainment and behaviour
  • Select and Appoint staff
  • Decide how the school budget is spent
  • Challenge and support the school to continually strive to improve

Governors are elected by parents, by teachers, are appointed by Calderdale Council and co-opted as representatives of the local community and business interests who each serve for four years. The minutes of meetings are available for inspection by parents.
