Welcome to our Governors’ section.


Please find below details of how our Governing body is structured, including the names, categories, responsibilities and terms of appointment for each Governor.

The governing body's aim is to take a largely strategic role in the running of a school.

This includes deciding what they want the school to achieve and setting the strategic framework for getting there. This means:


  • Setting suitable aims and objectives for the school
  • Agreeing policies, targets and priorities
  • Monitoring and reviewing aims and objectives, and whether the policies, targets and priorities are being achieved
  • Acting as a 'critical friend' to the headteacher by providing advice and support
