School governors are like a board of directors who make decisions about how the school is run.  They meet at least twice a term at school.

Governors are appointed to help:

  • Decide what is taught
  • Set standards of behaviour
  • Interview and select staff
  • Decide how the school budget is spent
  • School Governors have legal duties, powers and responsibilities
  • They can only act together
  • They cannot act individually
  • The Governing Body is made up of:
    • Parents
    • Teachers from the school
    • Local council representatives
    • Community representatives
    • Business men and women

Parent Governors bring the views of parents to the Governing Body, but they speak and act as individuals.

Our Chair of Governors is Mr Henry Coore.
