Meet Our Governors

Every school is required to have a governing body and school governors are drawn from different parts of the community. Our governing body is made up from representatives from the school staff, the Local Education Authority, the local community, parents, and the head teacher.

Our main aims are:

  • To set up the strategic framework for the school. To focus on raising standards of achievement, establishing high expectations and promoting effective teaching and learning
  • Act as a 'critical friend' by questioning policy and practice, as well as providing advice and support
  • Overseeing the internal organisation and management of the school
