The school Governing Body has three key roles:

  1. To ensure clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction of the school.
  2. To hold the headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils, including their wellbeing and safety.
  3. To oversee the financial performance of the school and to ensure that money is well spent.

The Governors hold two full governing body meetings each term and are committed to maintaining high standards in the school. Our vision is to use the strength of the school to build on previous achievements to create a learning community which seeks to raise standards, enjoyment, achievement and aspirations for all, while ensuring our children and their families are supported.  The values of the Governors are underpinned by the principles of equality, inclusion and commitment to support the well-being of every child in our school.
