We are currently in the process of redeveloping our website - some information may not be available or as up to date as we'd like.  In the meantime, please contact the school office.


The Governing Body is made up of parents, staff, members of the local community (people from local businesses and organisations) and members of the Local Authority. All these people are volunteers who give up their time for free.

School governors are there to give a long-term strategic direction to how the school is run; to be critical friends to the school; and to ensure the school is accountable for its actions. Governors discuss and have input on:

  • School policies, such as discipline, dress, sport, bullying and homework
  • Long term plans and the future of the school
  • How the school budget will be spent
  • How the school will try to reach performance targets
  • Appointment and dismissal of staff
  • Complaints from pupils, staff and parents
  • Repair and maintenance of school buildings
  • Use of school premises outside school hours

Members of the Governing Body have areas of responsibility, for example Curriculum subjects, Pupil Premium and SEN . As part of their role they will visit and monitor their area of responsibility throughout the year and report their findings to the rest of the Governing Body. The Governing Body meet half termly.

The Governing Body's action plan hightlight their priorities for this term.

Please see the attached document TFPN GB Membership that lists our current Governing Body together with the committees they sit on, their responsiblities and term of office date. 

The Governing Body's attendance at meetings during 2015-16, from September 2016 to the end of March 2017 can be found in the documents below.

Also attached is the Governing Body's Handbook and Code of Practice which also includes the Standing Orders for the Governing Body.

Please find attached the minutes from meetings held this school year (minutes are published once they have been approved by the committee/Governing body).
