Governors

School governors work on a voluntary basis and are central to the life of the School. The Governing Body is made up of parent governors, staff governors, Local Authority governors and community governors.

The governors meet on a regular basis to discuss such things as finance, curriculum, personnel issues and matters relating to the use of the school premises.  At all times the Headteacher and the Governors work closely together.

Our governors are…
