Our Governors

Governors are like a Board of Directors and make decisions about how the school is run. They meet at least once a term at school. Governors are appointed to help:

  • Decide what is taught
  • Set standards of behaviour
  • Interview and select staff
  • Decide how the school budget is spent

School Governors have legal duties, powers and responsibilities. They can only act together, they cannot act individually.

School Governors are:

  • Parents
  • Staff at the school
  • Local authority representatives
  • Community representatives, businessmen and women

Parent Governors:

  • Have a child in school
  • Are elected by parents of the school
  • Serve, as do other Governors, for four years

The school’s Governing Body are currently:

How can I become a Governor?
Whenever a vacancy for a Parent Governor arises, parents are given notice in the school Newsletter and are asked to put their name forward if they would like to be nominated as a Parent Governor. There are also vacancies for Community governors from time to time. If you are interested in becoming a Community governor contact the governing body through the school.
