Information about Governance

Every school is required to have a Governing Board. Together with the Headteacher, we have a collective responsibility for making sure that all children in our school receive the best education possible in a safe, caring environment. The Headteacher is responsible for the day-to-day management of the school. The Governing Board is strategic, which means that it plans for the future, considers how the school can achieve its targets and aspirations and monitors how the school is doing.

Please note: at our school, we have governance without committees. This structure was implemented to increase the effectiveness and impact of the Governing Board.

We hope that you will find the following information and links informative. If you require any further information or would like to contact us, all Governors can be contacted through the school office, or, email the Chair of Governors:
