Governors 

Our Governing Body meets 6 times a year and is made up of 11 governors.

 

 

School governors are people who want to make a positive contribution to children's education. They provide leadership and accountability in school.  Decisions are joint responsibility for the governing body, along with the school finances. 

At full governing meetings we set aims and objectives for the school. We view and discuss the headteachers report, update attendance and discuss pupil achievement. We monitor our school development plan and safe guarding. We set a focus for monitoring visits and receive feed back once they have been completed. We challenge and support the headteacher in all that she does. We set targets that enable us to achieve our aims and objectives.
