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 will support our school in providing a happy, safe and inspiring environment that reflects our Christian values, allowing the children to develop spiritually, morally, intellectually,
imaginatively and physically whilst instilling kindness, thoughtfulness and strong sense of self-belief.
