Welcome from the governing body

Governors are one of the largest volunteer forces in the country and have an important part to play in raising school standards.

The role of the governing board is absolutely key to the effectiveness of a school. 

School governors are responsible for:

Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction;

Holding executive leaders to account for the educational performance of the organisation and its pupils, and the performance management of staff;

Overseeing the financial performance of the organisation
and making sure its money is well spent


School governors

The governing body thought it would be useful to give some background to our work in school, where we fit into school life and our role within the school.

The board is comprised of 12 governors, including parents, governors from the community, the local authority, a member of staff and the head teacher.

Full governing board meetings are held six times a year and there are two committees, Finance and Buildings and Quality of Education.  The terms of reference for these committees can be found below.

For further information please email the Clerk.

We currently have one co-opted governor vacancy, if you are interested in joining the board please contact the clerk to governors.
