Welcome to our Governors’ section. 

Please find below details of how our Governing body is structured, including the names, categories, responsibilities and terms of appointment for each Governor.


The School Governor

Governors are the link between the school and the community and representatives of all those with an interest in the well-being and reputation of the school. Governors can make a real difference to the performance of the school and have a real part to play in making the school successful.


The governing body consists of individuals from as many different backgrounds as possible in order to fully reflect the community the school serves.  Everyone has something to offer.


They are all volunteers working in our own time, and we are all busy people.  However we feel that we gain much in personal development as well as a feeling of satisfaction that we have played an important part in improving education in the local community.


The governing body of our school is responsible for:


·     Ensuring that pupils receive high quality education and that the conduct of the school reflects this aim

·     Working with the headteacher on the strategic planning and management of the school

·     Considering and agreeing the aims and policies of the school

·     Discussing and approving the targets for improvement

·     Appointing the staff

·     Setting and monitoring the budget

·     Monitoring the performance of the school
