Our Governors

The Governing Body consists of appointed and elected members from all sections of the community. They can be parents, staff at the school, residents in the locality or representatives of local businesses.

The aim of the Governing Body is to make sure that the academy is a safe, happy and pleasant environment for the children and staff to learn and play together.  They ensure that the education your child receives is the best that can be provided.

The Governors meet every half term as a full Governing Body, with smaller sub-committees for Curriculum, Personnel and Finance, Premises and Audit also meeting regularly to discuss specific areas of academy business.
