The Governing Body of Bishop Ridley C of E Primary

The Governing Body is a committed group of people made up of parents, church nominees, appointees of the Local Authority and school staff.  They are a diverse group who bring a variety of experience and skills to the running of our school.

Its role includes having to make important decisions about how the school is run. It meets at least once a term, Other committees are constituted from time to time as the necessity arises (e.g., Admissions, Head Teacher's Appointment, Exclusion Appeals).
