Governors are the largest volunteer force in the country and have an important part to play in raising school standards. The School Governors represent different aspects of our community.
As Governors we are interested in your view of the school and any improvements you would like to see take place.
The Governing Board of our school plays an important role in supporting the Headteacher, school staff and parents/carers.
Together with the Headteacher, the Governors help set the future direction for the school and decide how the school's budget should be best spent to facilitate this. They also make decisions on performance targets, school policies and the school's development plan.
A staff Governor can be any member of staff, teaching or support and is elected by other members of staff.
