Governors

 

The School's Governing Body support and challenge the Headteacher and senior leadership to ensure that the school is run effectively for the benefit of all the children. They are responsible for monitoring expenditure, ensuring polices and procedures are in line with regulations, personnel issues and other important aspects of school life.  They bring with them experience of the wider community from all walks of life.

 

They meet as a Full Governing Body once a term. There is a Finance and General Purposes Committee and a Strategic Development Committee.  We are currently advertising for a parents governor.  Please see an up to date list of our governors below;
