Meet the Governors
We have seventeen governors on our school governing body, plus two associate governors, the headteacher and the clerk. There are six parent governors, one Local Authority, two Foundation, seven Co-opted and one Staff governor.
The governors work closely with the school leadership team by providing support and challenge and helping to set the strategic direction of the school. They also monitor and evaluate the work of the school and help set priorities for imporvement.
The full governing body meets twice a term and the two main committees meet half termly.
