Welcome to the Governors' Section

School governing bodies are responsible for working with the school to ensure that it delivers a good quality education. Together with the Principal, who is responsible for day-to-day management, they set the school's aims and policies.


Governors have three main roles:


  • To provide strategic direction for the school

  • To act as a critical friend to the Principal

  • To ensure accountability


They also carry out a number of other important duties, which include:


  • Determining how the school's budget is spent

  • Hearing appeals and grievances

  • Forming policy on the school's curriculum and collective worship

  • Setting standards for pupil behaviour

  • Making sure school buildings are welcoming and safe

  • Setting and monitoring the school's aims and policies

  • Staff recruitment and retention


We are incredibly fortunate to have a fantastic team of governors who have a real energy, enthusiasm and desire to help provide our children with the best possible education.


If you wish to contact any of the Governors above please use their dedicated email address:
