The school’s Governing Body is made up of 13 members. It consists of 4 Parent Governors, a Governor appointed by the local authority, the Headteacher, one Staff Governor and 6 Co-opted Governors. Co-opted Governors are appointed by the Governing Body, being people who are keen to support the school in a Governor role and who possess particular skills and knowledge that the Governing Body has identified as useful to governance of the school. The Governing Body may be assisted by Associate Governors if required (who do not possess voting rights).
You can find more about us individually on the Meet the Governors page.
