School Governors

All Governors serve a four-year term of office from their date of appointment. The Headteacher can make arrangements for anyone to contact the Governors, and any correspondence should be addressed to the Chair of Governors care of the school address. The Governing Body meets twice a term – the minutes of meetings are available for inspection at the school office. Parents can contact the school if they want anything discussed at these meetings.

The Governing Body comprises of the following: 6 Co-opted Governors, 4 Parent Governors, Headteacher; and 1 Staff Governor.

If a vacancy for a Co-opted Governor becomes available this is reported on our website.  Governors recruit new Governors based on any skills gaps within the existing Governing Body.  If you are interested in becoming a Governor, please contact the school and leave your details.

If a vacancy for a parent governor becomes available, the headteacher will send written notice of the election in a letter to be taken home by the children. Currently, school governors include (in alphabetical order):
