The main role of the Governing Body is to support the Headteacher and staff to reach targets as identified in the School Development Plan and the School Evaluation Form. These two documents highlight strengths of the school and areas for development. They help us to plan how to move towards excellence in all areas of school life.

Our legal duties include:-

The Governors meet at least once a term – their next meetings are on Thursday, 25 February 2021, Thursday, 22 April 2021, Thursday, 17 June 2021 & Tuesday, 06 July 2021.

There are several categories of Governor, appointed by different groups that have an interest in the school. Currently these groups are Community Governors, Co-opted Governors, Local Authority Governors, Parents and Staff. All Governors have equal voting rights.

We are committed to providing an excellent environment in which pupils learn successfully and enjoy their time in school.
