Governors

Our Governors are a group of volunteers which include parents, staff and members of the local community. Their main role is to promote ongoing improvements in standards throughout the school. They support the Headteacher and staff in identifying and planning the school’s long-term direction and they monitor and evaluate progress. They also help to set the school’s aims and values and are responsible for staff appointments, including the Headteacher. Many of their responsibilities carry a statutory requirement, which means they are obliged by law to do certain things, such as agree the annual budget.

Everything our Governors do is in the best interests of our pupils and the wider community. We want our children to thrive and achieve their full potential and ensure that our children learn in a safe and eco-friendly environment. There is one Full Governing Body meeting and three sub committee meetings (Curriculum and Staffing, Finance and Premises, and School Development Planning) per term.
