The Governing Body meets regularly to discuss all elements of school life. Contact the school if you wish to have a copy of the latest minutes please click on 'Reports' on the left hand side.

The Aims of the Governing body are (as suggested by Ofsted and the Department for Education)

  • Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction;
  • Holding the Headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils; and
  • Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent.
