Meet the Governors

Whilst the Headteacher is responsible for the internal organisation and management of the school on a day to day basis, overall responsibility lies with the Governing Body.

This includes assisting with the appointment of staff, having oversight of the curriculum and ensuring that the premises and finances of the school are efficiently and effectively used.

The Governing Body, as a whole, meets at least six times throughout the year.

All Governors are also linked to aspects of our current School Development Plan, which they monitor through visits to school and discussion with staff.

We currently have ten of our twelve governors in post. This is what they say about themselves:
