There are termly full governing body meetings to discuss issues arising and curriculum meetings to monitor the pro-gress within school.
A number of smaller working groups are set up to look at particular areas.

Each governor also has a subject to which they pay special attention and meet with the teacher involved to discuss progress. Governors are also linked to areas of the school development plan.
