The Governing Body is made up of people from all walks of life including parents, church members, school staff and people from the local community.  The Governing Body’s role is to provide strategic leadership for the school, as well as robust accountability, oversight and assurance for educational and financial performance.  We perform these functions through a close working relationship with the school’s Head and Senior Leadership Team.  We work together to become involved in all areas of school life and are accountable to parents for the decisions we make.  The Governing Board are always keen to hear from parents and can be contacted via the school office.


At least one Governor visits school every month to monitor and report on themes such as teaching, standards, accounts and safeguarding.  We meet twice every term to revise policies, decide on staffing and budgets, and examine the school’s results data.  That enables us to maintain a caring, safe and happy school community, with ambitious standards, and where everyone is encouraged and helped to reach their full potential.  It is an extremely rewarding role in which our priority, the pupils, are always put to the fore.
