Meet the Governors

The Governors of our school have a monitoring and supporting role. They visit school and meet regularly to discuss the achievement of pupils, the quality of teaching, the behaviour and safety of pupils, and the quality of leadership and management.

All governors meet together formally twice every term as the Full Governing Board but also delegate particular responsibilities to  pairs of governors to monitor specific activities: finance & resources, pupil progress, safeguarding, SEND, performance management, pupil premium,  health & safety, premises and the curriculum.

Governors include parents, staff and representatives from the local community.

Governors are always keen to hear from parents. If you would like to talk to a governor then leave a message with the school office and someone will contact you.

Governor Board Meeting Minutes are available from the school office on request.
