Governance - Local Governing Board

The Governing Body includes:

  • Head Teacher
  • Parents of children who attend school
  • People connected with the local community
  • Staff at the school

 

Governors are appointed or elected for a fixed period of time and work on your behalf to secure quality teaching and learning for your child/children. All Governors can be contacted through the school.

The Governing Body meets at least once a term. In addition to this a number of committees and working parties meet more frequently to conduct business affecting the day to day management of the school.
