Governors

School governors are a group of volunteers who come together as a group called the School Governing Body or Board. They support and challenge the headteacher to get the very best in education for the children and families in their school community.

A governing board has a strong focus on three key issues:

  • Making sure the school has a clear vision, ethos and strategic direction.
  • Holding the headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils.
  • Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent.

Here is an up to date list of our governors and their key areas of responsibility.
