We are very fortunate to have the following governors, some of whom have long partnership with our school.  They value and support our commitment and ethos in providing our children with exciting opportunities and a learning environment fit for purposes; giving all children the ability to grow in their education and faith.  


The Governing Body meet as a whole every term to cover all aspects, such as; curriculum, staffing, finance and safeguarding. The Governing Body also holds an Annual Inset , which provides the opportunity for all governors to get a complete overview of the school in terms of data and progress and targets.  A Pay Review Committee and Admission Panel are the only sub committees that overview these procedures in line with school policy and in turn feed back to the Full Governing Body.
