Meet the Governors

They are an amazing group of people who give their time freely to support and continually move the school forward, wanting the very best for every child and the community.

Supported by a Clerk, the governing body is made up of local people, each committing themselves to serve terms of four years. There are four types of governor: Parent governors, Co-opted governors, Staff governors and Associate governors. Between them they have a good knowledge of pupils, staff, school priorities, local issues and the relevant experience in supporting the leadership and management of the school. With the Headteacher, they ensure there is a continuous drive for improvement and accountability for outcomes.

We currently have a vacancy for a Parent Governor.  We will be holding Governor Elections as soon as the children are able to return to school after COVID-19 restrictions have been lifted.  If you are interested, please contact the Clerk to Governors with your details, and you will be sent a nomination form as soon as we are able to hold elections.

We are also looking to appoint a co-opted governor from the wider community, preferably with a business/marketing background.  If you are interested, please contact the Clerk to Governors in the first instance.
