The composition of the Governing Body is as follows:

  • The Headteacher
  • One Local Authority Governor
  • Six Parent Governors
  • Three Staff Governors
  • Eight Community Governors

Our Co-Chair of Governors are Ms Juliet Hartridge and Mr Julian Gravatt.

The Governing Body of a school is responsible for making sure that it is run to promote pupil achievement and to raise standards. Their duties, in partnership with the Headteacher, include:

  • Setting strategic direction, policies and objectives;
  • Approving the school budget;
  • Reviewing progress against the school's budget and objectives;
  • Supporting and advising the Headteacher

The full Governing Body meets once each term.  In addition, the Governing Body has established a number of committees for specific aspects of its work, and these committees hold separate meetings, generally once each term.

Governors can be contacted via the school office or by email
