Governance Structure


Chaucer School is part of the Tapton School Academy Trust and has its own Governing Body.

The school Governors play a key and active part in all aspects of the school, with representation from parents, industry and commerce, the local community and schools and staff. The school manages its own finances handling a current budget of over £5.5 million.

The Governors discharge their responsibilities through three committees which cover all elements of the schools' operation:

  • Finance & General Purposes Committee
  • Teaching & Learning Committee
  • Parent & Community Committee

Parents are kept informed of the Governors' work and activities through the parent representatives and through our Parent Partnership.
