Governors are the biggest group of voluntary workers in the UK. The role of this Governing Board is to ensure that children who attend our school receive a great all round education in an environment which is suitable for this purpose. The School works hard to ensure that the children reach their full potential, are equipped for the next step in their education journey and to becoming good citizens.

The Statutory Core Duties of a Governing Board are:

1. Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction

2. Holding the Headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils

3. Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent

The Governing Board has nine Governor Members:

* three Parent Governors

* the Headteacher

* one other staff Governor

* one Local Authority

* three Co-opted Governors

Co-opted Governors are chosen by the Governing Board for their particular knowledge or skill(s).

In addition to the above members we have Associate Governors: they have specialist knowledge / skills and act as ‘advisors’ to the Governing Board. They are not expected to attend full Governing Board meetings and cannot vote.

The Members Profile and the Structure Chart in this Governors section will give you more information regarding the Governing Board members; their remit and how The Governing Board is organised.

This Governing Board does not have any committees; Governors have specific roles / links to enable them to monitor the effectiveness of the School Improvement Plan and on all the factors relevant to the School, its finances and the education provision for the children. All Governors attend all the meetings. The Governors Annual Statement will give you an outline / summary of our work during the previous Academic year.

 Our School has been graded 'Good' by Ofsted and we are working to gain an 'Outstanding’ rating. We are quite rightly very proud of our great School and Nursery.

We always welcome suggestions, feedback and ideas from pupils, parents / carers, staff or just even a chat!
