“The governing body is forward-thinking in its approach to governance.” Ofsted March 2017
The Governing Body works closely with the Headteacher in the management and leadership of the school to ensure that the school continues to maintain its high standards as well as improve and develop further. The full Governing Body meets twice each term, with additional meetings for committees.
Minutes of previous meetings are available to download below or hardcopies can be requested from the office.
Our report to parents from the Finance Committee is available here:
If you would like to talk to a governor then please contact the school office. There are photos of all of us on this page so please feel free to have a chat if you see one of us at an event or in the playground.
