Our Governors

Welcome to the Governors' section

In this section we will provide details of how our Governing Board is structured, represented - including the names, categories, responsibilities, attendance and terms of appointment for each Governor.

We have also provided the Register of Governor Interests form for your information.

The Governing Board is made up of a cross-section of local people who freely volunteer their time. They meet regularly as a Governing Board to discuss a wide range of school issues. Governors also meet in smaller sub-committees and as link governors, working with the Headteacher and subject leaders in matters such as Curriculum, Finance, Premises & Personnel, Safeguarding, Attendance & Inclusion.

There are clear expectations of a Governor at our school, which can be found in the following documents:
