What do we do?
The Governing Body is a group of people drawn from parents, staff and members of the local community. Our role is to monitor, sustain and improve the overall performance of the school. Selection of staff, monitoring of the curriculum, review of school policies and maintaining the school premises are all functions of the Governing Body. Together with the Headteacher we have responsibility for the strategic direction of the school.
Governors can be contacted via the school office.
