Our school's governing board (formerly called the governing body) is made up of members of the local community, the diocese (for Church schools) and parents/carers at the school.


Governors have a responsibility for the strategic direction for the school and for providing support and challenge to the Headteacher. The school's governing board meet 6 times throughout the year and monitor the development and performance of the school as a group.


Minutes of the Governing Body meetings are public documents and can be viewed by arrangement with the school office.
