Governors

Our governors come from across the community, representing a range of skills and expertise. There are several categories of governor, appointed by different groups; these are Community governors, the Local Authority, Parents and Staff. All governors have equal status, no matter how they are appointed.

We, as governors, have great pride in our school and all that it has achieved. We are responsible for the strategic direction of the school, monitoring standards and policies and ensuring value for money.

We meet regularly, both at full governing body meetings and at committee level. If you would like to find out more, please contact the school office by E-mail or by telephone on 01293 527473.

Mission Statement
