Meet the Governors

Governors

Our governors are representatives of the parents, school staff and the local community. They meet together at least once each term and in smaller sub-committees. They have responsibility for overseeing the organisation, curriculum and budget of the school. The day-to-day running of the school is entrusted to the Headteacher and staff.
