Meet the School Governors Team

The governors meet at least once a term to make the decisions that affect how the school is run. They are appointed by various bodies including representatives from the church and the local community.

Parent Governors are elected for a fixed period, and elections held whenever vacancies arise, so all parents and carers may have an opportunity to get involved.
