Your Governors

We have enthusiastic and supportive members of our Governing Body, who bring a wealth of expertise and are committed to school improvement.  They make significant personal contributions to the school in terms of time and effort, for which we are very grateful. 

Governors are appointed to help:

  • support staff with the evaluation of and development of school plans
  • interview and select staff
  • decide how the school budget is spent

Governors have legal duties and can only act together, not individually, and meet together at least three times a year.  School Governors are parents; teachers at the school; local Council representatives; community representatives; businessmen and women.

If you are interested in becoming a parent Governor in the future, please ask the Headteacher for details.
