Our Governors are representatives of the parents, school staff and the local community. They meet every half term as a whole Governing Body and then also in more specfic groups (based on skill set) every half term in smaller sub committees.

The Governors are responsible for the overall policies of the school, making key appointments, monitoring the running of the school and having overall control of the budget.

Governors have a duty to regularly review the way in which the school is organised, monitor its achievements and to contribute to the development of the school. Governors work in partnership with the Head Teacher in every aspect of the school’s life.
