Governors

Our school governors play a very important and active role in our school life and development, setting overall strategy and holding the Headteacher to account for performance. The Full Governing Body (FGB) normally meets at least four times a year with sub-committees of the FGB meeting additionally to deal with specific tasks. Governors also play an important pastoral role through visits to the classrooms and providing support at a variety of school functions. More general information on school governance can be found here. If you have any questions about our governance arrangements or for our governors, please contact us via the clerk in the first instance.
