We have a dedicated team of Governors. All of them volunteer their time and expertise in order to improve the outcomes for children.
The governors are not all paid employees of the school. They are not based at the school but they visit as often as they can.
The role of governors is now far reaching with wide ranging responsibilities. Primarily their role is to lead the school strategy for improvement. In order to carry out these responsibilities effectively, Governors meet 6 times per year as a full governing body with additional meetings for Governors working on specific parts of school improvement with school staff.
If you are interested in becoming a School Governor in this, or another school please contact the Headteacher.
You can contact the chair of the Governing Body through the school or via e-mail at

Our Governors operate a Circle Model of Governance.
