The governing body, consisting of parents, members of staff, representatives of the local community and local authority bring a wealth of experience to the school and provide an objective overview of the work of the school.


They take responsibility for staff appointments, curriculum review and financial management. Governors are appointed, co-opted or elected for a four year term and are very valuable members of our school community.


Our Governing Body consists of 13 Governors. Our Governing Body is made up of:

  • at least two parent governors who are elected by the parents
  • one local authority governor
  • the headteacher
  • one staff governors
  • two foundation governors
  • five co-opted governors

The term of office for all categories is for a fixed period of four years. The Headteacher and Vicar remain as governors whilst in post.
