Information about the Governing Body

School governors are people who want to make a positive contribution to children’s education. They have a wide range of responsibilities, with their priority being the strategic direction of the school and, being accountable for the performance of the school.

Together with the Headteacher, governors:

  • Keep parents informed
  • Consider complaints from parents
