Local Governing Bodies play a crucial role in the governance of the school and commit to working together in the best interests of the school. The main purpose of the Governing Body is to:

  • Hold their school to account by monitoring and reviewing its academic and financial performance and its impact on pupil outcomes;
  • Ensure a School Improvement Plan is in place reflecting key priorities for the school;
  • Ensure sound governance and financial management of the school;
  • Work collaboratively with the other schools;
  • Ensure effective links with the school community and that the school meets its responsibilities to the community in relation to the safeguarding and education of its pupils.

The school is supported by Emily Cheeseman from Governor Support.

Each Governing Body has up to nine members; two parent governors, the Headteacher, two staff governors and three co-opted governors. Governors may be contacted via the school.
