Governors

Governors stand for four years and they form important links between the school, parents and the local community.

Our governors have three main roles ://

  • Critical friend – Providing encouragement and honest feedback.
  • Accountability – Ensuring that the school is effectively run, and continually improving.
  • Strategic – Helping the headteacher decide how the school should be run.

Our Governing Body has two committees – the Finance and Resources Committee, and the School Improvement Committee.  All Governors are assigned to one of these committees based on a skills audit. The governors can be contacted through our school office.

Our governors are…
