Welcome to our Governors' section. 

Please find below details of how our Governing body is structured, including the names, categories, responsibilities and terms of appointment for each Governor.


The full governing body committee meets three times per year.  The Resources committee and the Curriculum and pupil issues committee  also meet three times per year.

All governors are required to attend these meetings as all governors are on these committees.


Categories of Governor


Parent Governors:

If you are a parent of a pupil(s) at the school or the primary carer, you can stand for election as one of the Parent Governor positions, (once a Parent Governor post becomes vacant). If more than one parent expresses an interest in filling a vacancy, elections are held in which all parents can vote.
