The Governing Body has a vital role to play in making sure that every child gets the best possible education.

This is achieved by:

  • Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction
  • Holding the Headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils and
  • Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent.

The full governing body meets six times every year (one meeting every-half term). In addition to this individual governors will take a role on one or more monitoring groups and visit the school in order to assess progress towards strategic goals, identified through the School Improvement Plan.

If you have any queries or concerns please speak to any member of the governing body or contact the Clerk via the school office, who can pass on any correspondence.  Copies of the Governing Body meeting minutes can also be obtained, upon request, from the Clerk to the governing body.

The Governing Body consists of:

  • 3 Parent Governors
  • 1 Authority Governor
  • 4 Co-opted Governors
  • 3 Foundation Governors
