We have a committed team of School Governors who meet regularly to discuss school improvements, management and finance. Our School Governing Body reflects the diversity of the local community and is made up of members of the community, parents and staff.

We also have our own Pupil Governors who have been elected to represent the views of their classes on ways to improve our school.

Our Governing Body has a strong and increasingly important role in helping us to expand our capability as an effective school which provides high quality education. They specifically ensure that other bodies are involved in supporting children and families. We’re proud of the commitment of our current governing team to take our school into the next stage of development.

Our Governors Code of Conduct policy can be found here.
