Welcome to our Governors’ section

Please find below details of how our Governing body is structured including the names, responsibilities and terms of appointment for each Governor.

The Governing Body has three main roles:

  • To set the strategic direction of the school
  • To act as a critical friend to the school
  • To hold the school to account

We do this by meeting twice a term as a full governing body; during the first meeting each of our committees reports on how they have held the school to account.  At the second meeting we receive and examine a detailed report from the Headteacher.

In addition to these meetings, governors visit the school to see it in action and offer their own professional or personal experience for the greater good of the school.

The day to day management of the school is delegated to the Headteacher and his or her staff.

Governors are unable to intervene in any individual school matter unless the Headteacher has been unable to satisfactorily resolve the matter of concern. Individual governors have no special authority; it is the governing body as a group which exercises its responsibilities.

At the September 2021 Governing Body meeting, Anita Marshall was elected Chair of Governors.
