The Governing Body of the school is made up of parents, representatives from the Local Education Authority, Foundation Governors representing the church, representatives from the villages which the school serves, and elected staff.   We are a committed and hard-working group whose aim is to ensure that we achieve the best possible education for all of the children at the school.  The views of all parents are very important to us.  We are very proud of our school, and our parents value it highly. 

The Chair of Governors is Mrs Janette Yates.  If for any reason you would like to contact the Chair of Governors, please arrange through school.
