School Governors

School governors are responsible for supervising the management side of a school. This includes the strategy, policy, budgeting and staffing.

They enable the school to run as efficiently as possible, working alongside senior leaders and supporting teachers to provide excellent education to our children.


The Board of Governors meeting is held once a term. In addition, each month there is a Governors’ ‘Surgery’. This is an opportunity for parents to meet with a governor. To see when the next ‘Surgery’ is taking place, check the school calendar. If you wish to meet with a governor during one of these sessions please contact the school office to arrange an appointment.
