Meet the Governors

Our Role in School

The aim of the Governing Body is to work with the Headteacher and the staff, in order to help our children achieve their full potential in a happy and caring environment. 

The key ways in which we do this is by

  • monitoring the performance and progress of our children across the key stages 
  • supporting the school staff to help them teach and care for our children
  • deciding on how the resources the school are best used to maximise progress and attainment
  • planning ahead so that the performance of our children and our school continues to improve
  • acting as a critical friend


The Governing Body is representative of the school's community with a wide range of experience and expertise.

Various sub committees can when strategically identified and incorporated focus on for example - 

finance, staffing, curriculum, safeguarding and health & safety. These sub committees will report termly to the Full Governing Body.


We welcome views from pupils, parents and the wider school community and can be contacted at the school address.
