Our Governing Body is made up of Parents, Staff, Community and Local Authority (LA) Governors. They are responsible for the strategic leadership of the school and ensuring the school runs effectively. They also make decisions about school policies and procedures.
Finding skilled and diverse governors for our governing board has and always will be our aim. We know that a diverse governing board is a stronger board, reflecting school communities and the wider country.
We proudly display the Governors for Schools quality mark to show our board’s commitment to finding skilled and diverse governors through an independent organisation. It is an assurance to all those in our school community that the board values diverse governance and is doing all it can to make governance as robust as possible.
Please find below details of how our Governing body is structured.
