The Governing Body 2022-23

As a church voluntary aided school, a number of our governors are elected from the church – foundation governors.

The Governors meet regularly to make decisions for the school. There are also Link Governors who have responsibilities to support specific areas in school. e.g. Numeracy, Literacy, Special Educational Needs, etc. A nominated governor is also attached to each class in school to offer support and communication with the children in that class and with the teacher.
