Information about the Governing Body

School governors are people who want to make a positive contribution to children’s education. They have a wide range of responsibilities, with their priority being the strategic direction of the school and, being accountable for the performance of the school.

Together with the Headteacher, governors:

  • Ensure the national curriculum and religious education are taught

  • Act as a link between the school and the community it serves
  • Keep parents informed
  • Consider complaints from parents
  • Ensure the school is well maintained
  • Ensure health & safety requirements are met.
