Growing Together: Aim High, Believe, Achieve

Our Governors

The Governors of our school have certain legal responsibilities to ensure that the school organises effectively its time and resources. They represent a wide spectrum of life in the community and it is their aim to work together for the benefit of our children, staff and community.

The Governors meet at least once a term; agendas and minutes are available in school for parents to inspect.
