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.
