Welcome to our Governors’ section

Please find below details of how our Governing body is structured, including the names, categories, responsibilities and terms of appointment for each Governor.



We have a well represented governing body which are always happy to help.

The Governing Body has responsibility for the running of the school and can make decisions about how the school is run. They meet at least once a term as a Full Governing Body, and are appointed by certain bodies, such as the Local Authority, Teachers and Parents. There are different committees within the Governing Body that have responsibility for aspects such as allocation of resources (including budget) and School Improvement.

The minutes of the Governors’ meetings are in school, available for anyone to read.
