John E. Batty, like all schools, has a group of dedicated people appointed or elected, who meet regularly to discuss and work for the well-being of the school. They have a great deal of influence in school management – particularly over long-term planning and developments. They work in partnership with the head, teachers and local authority, considering issues as wide-ranging as curriculum policy, the school premises, staff appointments and finances.
The school has two parent governors. Election for these positions takes place every four years. Should any parent wish to contact the Governors, they can do so by calling the school office to obtain contact details. A meeting of all governors is held at least once during each school term. In addition two further committees meet every term. These are:
- Premises, Health, Safety, Finance and Staffing Committee
- Raising Achievement Committee
