Our Governors

The school is supported by a dedicated and enthusiastic group of Governors, who work in close partnership with the Headteacher, staff and children, to help ensure the best outcomes for our children.

Each Governor is elected for a period of 4 years and any parent of pupils registered at the school is eligible to stand when a vacancy occurs.

The Governors are readily available if you should wish to bring any matters to their attention. If you wish to contact the Chair of Governors please enquire at the school office.
