Governing Body

The Governors of our School are involved in all aspects of School life. 

Governors' meetings take place four times a year in the school.

The Governors are committed to continual improvement and the development and maintenance of high standards and quality in all aspects of School life.


The different categories of governors on our Local Governing Body are:


Parents Governors who have a child in school at the time of election.


Staff Governor who are members of staff at school and are elected by their colleagues.


Co-opted Governors are appointed to the local governing body by other governors because they have a specilaist skill set which will further enhance the work of the body.


The Headteacher is also a member of the local governing body by right of the position they hold in school.
