Role of the Governors

The Governing Body is made up of parents, staff and representatives of the local authority and members of the community. They are all volunteers who are committed to our work and have knowledge and expertise to share with us.

The Governing Body works with and supports the staff of the school to deliver the school's vision, to ensure that the school is continuously improving and meet a number of statutory requirements.

They meet as a whole group 6 times a year. They also have sub-committees which oversee all aspects of our provision.

To find out more about our Governing Body and how you might get involved, please speak to the Headteacher, Deputy Headteacher or one of our parent governors.

The Membership of the TLC Federation is made up of:

4 Parent Governors

2 Staff Governors including the Headteacher

1 Local Authority Govenor

5 Co-opted Governors
