we Achieve, we Believe, we Care


Governing Body

Each school has a Governing Body comprised of parent governors, people from the local community, teaching staff and the head teacher.  As a church school, our Governing Body also includes the parish vicar.  

Governors are responsible for the effective management of our school, acting within a framework set out by national legislation and the policies of the Local Authority and the Diocese.  A key responsibility is helping to set strategic direction for the school and we share a committed focus on continuing to drive school performance.

In addition to the meeting as a Full Governing Body, we also operate through two Committees:

  • Resource Committee (Finance, Building and Staffing)
  • Curriculum & Standards Committee

The Full Governing Body meets termly, as do the other two Committees.  The minutes of Governor meetings are held in school and may be viewed upon request.


Who are we?

The Governing Body is currently comprised of ten Governors, plus the head teacher.
