 We are looking for new governors to join our Governing Board! Check out the table below to see where we have vacancies!

Our School Governors



The school's Governing body is made up from various members of the community, who have a wide range of: background, skills, knowledge and experience. The Governors work collectively to support the school and participate in decisions that directly affect the education and well-being of the children attending. The Headteacher, Mrs Bignall, is ultimately responsible for the day-to-day management of the school and implementation of policies; but the Governors assist her and her staff by monitoring and keeping under review the broad policies, plans and procedures within which the school operates.


A Governor's term of office lasts for four years and during this time they attend six meetings annually. Each Governor is also a member of a sub-committee, that meet separately once a term to oversee specific areas within the school. Our sub-committees are: resources and management, (including finance), and teaching and learning committee.


Full Governing Body meetings take place at least once  term.
