Our governors are responsible for raising school standards by:

Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction

Holding the headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils

Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent


Our governors are drawn from different parts of the local community. 

3 Foundation Governors appointed by the Church

1 Local Authority Governor

4 governors elected by the parents 

1 Governor elected by the staff


3 Co-opted Governors.

We annually audit the skills of the governing board in order to ensure that governors have the relevant skills and
experiences to contribute to the work of the board. Collectively, our governors have a range of backgrounds
and competencies appropriate to the board’s responsibilities.  If there is a shortage in a skills area we seek to rectify this by training or by recruiting someone to the board with the necessary experience, or both.

All Governors have the same status and are eligible to vote when required.

Full Governing Body meetings are open to the public, and parents of the school are welcome to attend or view the minutes of the meetings in school.  Anyone who wishes to attend is asked to contact the school's reception or the Clerk.  Members of the public will be asked to leave when confidential issues are discussed in part two of the meeting.

Governing Body committee meetings are not open to the public, but anyone can contact the committee Chairs to learn more about the work of the committees.
