The Governing body         Governors: Login to the secure area here for school documents

The Governors of our  School come from all walks of life – from parents of children in the school and members of the community, who want to give something to the school. All give their time,free of charge, endeavouring to ensure that your child’s education is the best it can be.

The Governing Body carry out their responsibilities by setting targets,challenging the way things are done and by adopting and checking that relevant policies are being implemented. Regular meetings take place together with the Headteacher. The full Governing Body meets twice each term,  but because the running of a school is a complex issue, the Governing Body is split up into a number of sub-committees and/or working parties. These include: Education and Standards, Finance, Pay and Personnel, Premises, Health and Safety and Performance Management.
