Governing Body Overview

The governing body is a corporate and legal body with a general responsibility for the conduct of the school with a view to promoting Cranmer’s aims and vision to create 'a community of caring, collaborative, critical and creative thinkers’ by firstly providing a broad and balanced curriculum in a safe and healthy environment, secondly, by setting appropriate targets for pupil achievement, and finally by managing the school budget. 

 

There are currently 11 governors along with Wendy Hick as Headteacher and Karen Gentry serving as the Clerk to the Governors. The governing body is made up of Staff Governors, Parent Governors, Local Authority Governors and Co-Opted Governors. The full governing body meets, at least, four times a year.

 

Within the governing body, each governor nominates himself/herself to serve on one smaller committee of which there are two: Resources, Teaching, and Learning Committee. Each committee meets once a term. Within each committee, there is a chair, and particularly, within the Teaching and Learning committee, governors will take on specific roles eg, be designated as the Numeracy or Literacy Governor, Computing or SEN Governor, or have some other area of singular focus.
