Our School Governors play a crucial part in ensuring that the school is run in line with government guidelines and for the benefit of the local community. The main aim of the Governing body is to maintain and improve the standards of education for all pupils of all abilities. The Governors' role is to oversee the development of the school and to work alongside the Head Teacher providing support. The Governors are drawn from the community, parents, and school staff, all of whom play a crucial part in the running of the school. In addition to half-termly full governing body meetings there are additional Committee meetings. The Resources and Premises committee is responsible for finance. staffing and health and safety of the school buildings and grounds. The Children and Learning committee is responsible for ensuring that the education of all children, including those with Special Educational Needs is appropriate and challenging, and that children's progress is carefully monitored and that interventions are put in place where necessary. 

Our Chair of Governors, Mrs Victoria Rogers, can be contacted via the school office.

We are delighted that Ofsted rated the leadership and management of the school as “Outstanding” in March 2015:

“Skilled governors consistently and effectively challenge and support leaders. This has helped to secure outstanding teaching and achievement.”
