Welcome to our Governors section!
Please find below details of what it means to be a ‘Governor at Sandbrook’, how our governing body is structured, including names, categories, responsibilities and terms of each governor, along with our ‘Meet the governors of our school’ section and links to ‘Governor visits to school’.
The Sandbrook governing body meets 6 times every year, once each half term. At the start of each term the governing body meets for a full Governing board meeting. The second meeting each term meets to discuss curriculum, standards and resources. All governors are required to attend these meetings as all governors are on these committees.
At other times during the academic year, governors may form a committee to discuss
pupil discipline, personnel and pay or complaints.
The Headeacher appraisal committee meets once every year.
