Governors

Our Governing Body consists of nine Governors, who give their time voluntarily to ensure:

  • The clarity of vision and ethos of the School
  • The Head Teacher is accountable for the educational performance of the School
  • The financial accountability of the School

Our team of Governors are highly skilled in a range of different areas and challenge the leadership of the school to continually promote improvement. The main work of the Governors is completed within two committees: the Finance and Premises team and the Teaching and Learning team. 

The Governors regularly visit the school and often carry out monitoring visits focusing on different areas of the curriculum and well-being of staff and children.
