School Governance

School governance is the most important volunteering role in education and as unpaid voluntary public servants we are committed to serving the best interests of the school.


We set strategies for the school, monitor its achievements, help to sustain its identity and provide a link with the local community. As an effective governing body we are a source of enormous strength to the school. We play a vital role in promoting high standards of educational achievement, share a common vision that the children in our community should receive the best possible education in all areas of their development and ensure the continued development of the school for current and future pupils.


The governing body is made up of: school staff, parents of pupils and other members of the community from all walks of life, appointed by the Board of Directors.The term of office of each governor is 4 years.


If you would like to make a difference to children’s lives by helping them to realise their aspirations and expectations, please volunteer to join us and become a School Governor.


We hold formal meetings once a term to consider and act on a variety of items affecting the school and to receive reports from the Headteacher concerning conduct, curriculum etc. Minutes of the issues discussed and decisions taken during our meetings are available in the school. Please ask at the school office if you are interested in seeing them.


You can get more information on how to become a governor and make arrangements to talk to existing governors about what drives them to serve their community in this way from the school office.
