About us

Governors work closely with headteachers, school staff and representatives from the local authority (LA). The governors meet every term as a whole 'governing body', as well as meeting in smaller groups as members of committees at other times during the term. Governors are appointed as part of our School Leadership Team which makes strategic decisions about: 
 
  • The premises including health & safety issues)  
  • the interviewing and selection of staff
  • school budget and staffing decisions
  • the curriculum
Our overall aim is to improve the outcomes for our school so that pupils achieve the highest standards, and for the children to feel secure and happy in our school environment.
