Governors

From The Governing Body

The Governing Body of the school is made up of parents, Foundation Governors representing the church, co-opted governors, 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 Nikki Knowles.  If for any reason you would like to contact the Chair of Governors, please arrange through school.

Together, the Governors are responsible for:

  • Setting aims and targets for the school and checking the school's progress towards attaining these.
  • Monitoring how well the school's policies and plans are working.
  • Accounting for the performance of the school and the Governing Body.
  • Working with the Headteacher to make sure that teaching at school is effective and good quality and the children are making the best possible progress.
  • Taking general responsibility for the school and its budget.
  • Challenging and supporting the senior management team and taking opportunities to show interest in and appreciation of staff and pupils.
  • Promoting the interests of the school and its pupils in the wider community.

There are several different types of Governor:

  • Parent Governors - Elected from parents at the school by parents at the school.
  • Staff Governors - Elected from staff at the school by staff at the school.
