Governors

The governing body plays an important strategic role by giving direction and focus on the governance of the school. 

Their role is to govern rather than manage.  This includes

  • Promoting high standards of education
  • Planning the school’s long-term future
  • Overseeing the school’s aims, values and ethos
  • Ensuring proper financial management of the school
  • Appointing staff, including the headteacher
  • Communicating openly with parents, the local community and the local education authority
  • Supporting the school


The full governing body meets at least twice a term and also has a number of committees who discuss issues in greater detail and report back to the main meetings. There are three main committees covering Finance & Premises, Teaching & Learning and Ethos. There is also a Pay and Personnel panel and Holiday Request 
panel who meet when the need arises.

All our governors are voluntary and there are currently 11 members who are shown in the link here.

They are fully committed to the role and undertake a wide range of other tasks and monitoring visits not listed here.
