Becoming a Governor

The Governing Body is made up of willing and skilled volunteers who freely give their time and expertise to support the schools and assist in its leadership and management.  Our focus is on setting and monitoring the strategic direction for the school and ensuring we have the resources to deliver an outstanding education for every pupil.  The Executive Headteacher’s run the school day to day, and the Governing Body appoints the Executive Headteachers and supports their work. 

Parent Governors are elected by parents and carers of children in the school, Co-opted Governors are elected by the Governing Body and the Local Authority Governor is appointed by the LA.  In addition the Executive Headteacher is also a member, as is one member of current staff, elected by their colleagues. All governors with the exception of ex-officio governors are appointed for a term of office of 4 years.

The Clerk to Governors can be contacted through the school.
