Governors

Governing Body

Our Governing Body meets regularly to oversee the management of the school and to help determine its strategic development. Amongst its responsibilities are curriculum, staffing, premises, finances, health and safety and admissions. Four Governors are appointed by Devon County Council, six are elected by parents, two are elected by the teaching staff, one by the non-teaching staff and four are appointed as community governors.
