Meet the Governors


The Governing Body are a group of volunteers who work alongside the Head Teacher to support the strategic leadership of the school.   Much of the work of the Governing Body is around the strategic leadership of the school which means we support the school leadership in making both good financial decisions and also making sure that decisions about children's education are of a high standard.   We track the progress of the school which means we look at how well our children are performing in their education.  We also look at how well our teachers are teaching and support school leaders.  

Our vision: A thinking school committed to providing a high standard of education where children feel safe, respected and supported, enabling them to thrive and make a positive contribution to the wider community.

Our work is divided across two committees which meet once every term, alongside Full Governing Body meetings held half termly.

This committee challenges attainment levels  in the school.  We receive reports from school leaders about how well children are doing and ask searching questions about how we can continually make this better.  We also oversee any changes to the curriculum.
