Governors' Details

Our board of governors work closely with the school to ensure that it is compliant with all government statutory requirements as well as ensuring that the school is up to date and takes action on all new initiatives.  Each Governor serves a term of office of 4 years.

Our governors bring a rich and vibrant wealth of experience from a variety of different backgrounds and professions. They give their time voluntarily to ensure that the school provides a safe and stimulating learning environment.  The school aims have been adopted to ensure that every child grows into a sensible, mature, tolerant and confident young learner who will achieve their full potential, at whatever level that might be.  All our Full Governor Meetings are open to the public, so please join us if you wish to, dates of meetings are listed on the school newsletters.

The Chair of Governors is Mrs Caroline Down who may be contacted via the school.

The Vice-Chair is Mr Darren Newland.

Out Governors worked under a 'Lead Governor' model rather than a committee structure.  Please see file below for information on each Governor lead area.  Governor monthly meeting alternate between 'Full Governor' and 'Lead Governor' meetings.
