The Governing Body of the school is made up of people from a variety of backgrounds. The school governors are a group of individuals, who are elected, nominated or co-opted and are representatives of parents and staff, and the local community. School Governors work with the Headteacher and are responsible for setting the strategic direction of the school.

Our purpose as a governing body is to support & improve the school through our involvement, providing supportive, active & critical voice to ensure that the school achieves its maximum potential and every pupil achieves.

The three key functions for the Governing Body are:

  • To ensure that the vision, ethos & strategic direction of the school are clearly defined
  • To ensure that the Headteacher performs her responsibilities for the educational performance of the school;
  • To ensure the sound, proper & effective use of the school’s financial resources.
The Governing Body adopts an executive responsibility approach to its functionality & reports through Governor meetings held six times a year. Where committees are required, the chair of those committees is listed below:
