Our Current Governing Body

Our Governors work closely with our headteacher, school staff and representatives from the local authority (LA) and Church of England Diocese. Please see below for details of the Governors at our school.

Governors make regular visits to the school, both formally and informally. A record of the visits is kept by the Head Teacher. Below is a document detailing specific School Governor responsibilities, terms of office and the Governing Body sub-committee representation. It also includes attendance at meetings.
