Welcome to the Governors Section

The Governing Body is composed of unpaid volunteers who have agreed to support and challenge the work of the school under the head teacher's leadership. Governors represent various interested groups as defined by law. We meet as a full governing body twice a term. We also have two committees that oversee Finance and Personnel and Curriculum and School Improvement. Each of these committees meet at least once a term. From time to time working parties are convened to undertake a particular task, such as self-evaluation. Governors also monitor the work of the school through visiting classes and attending school events.

The Annual Governance Statement below outlines some of the key information about our Governing Body and the work carried out by the different groups.
