Welcome to our Governors’ section.
Please find below details of how our Governing body is structured, including the names, categories, responsibilities and terms of appointment for each Governor.

Since the 1944 Education Act it has been a legal requiment that all maintained schools should have Gouverning Bodies, and their responsibility has been twofold - to ensure that the school is run in a way that meets the needs of the community and to protect the interests of the school. The Governing Body therefore provides a strategic view, helping to set, and keep under review, the broad framework  within which the Headteachers and staff run the school. In all its work, the Governing Body should focus on key issues of raising standards of achievement, establishing high expectations and promoting effective learning and teaching. The Governors also consider all relevant reports, recommendations and directives from Torfaen County Borough Council, the East and South Consortium and the Welsh Assembly Government.

Our next Parent Governor vacancy will arise in April 2018. Therefore, documentation will be sent to all parents in March 2018 who will be invited to apply should they so wish.
