Governors

The Governors are an important group of people who have responsibility for the effective management of the school. They work in partnership with the Headteacher to establish the aims and values of the school and to ensure that all statutory requirements are met. They evaluate resources and school finances to secure best value. Their key purpose is to see that pupils are afforded the best opportunities for learning and personal development.

The Governors are made up of Parents, Staff, and representatives from the community and the Local Authority.
