Our Governors

The Governing Body of the school has a responsibility for the school’s strategic planning and development and to ensure that outcomes are monitored. Our school governors meet frequently throughout the year. With the Headteacher, they take responsibility for finance, premises and the curriculum. Our Governing Body has two Committees, one responsible for Finance and Personnel, the other for Curriculum and Standards. Governors serve for an initial term of four years, which may be extended.
