Governing body

The school has an experienced and supportive governing body, with a strong core of long standing members, who know the school very well. The governing body is made up of parents/carers, professionals and members of the whole school community who have expertise and experience in a wide range of education or related fields. 

The governing body meet as a full governing body and as sub-commities at least every half term. Governors also take part in learning walks and attend various events throughout the year.

“Governors never hesitate to challenge practice and seek the very best provision and outcomes for pupils. There is a supportive, healthy and mutually respected relationship between governors and staff and a strong sense of shared accountability and responsibility.Governors continue to provide effective challenge and support to school leaders. Governors’ deep knowledge of the school enables them to identify any emerging potential issues so that swift and decisive action can be taken. For example, governors have been relentless in their determination to improve attendance so that no pupil is disadvantaged by missing school. As a result of the school’s actions, attendance improved considerably last year. Governors value the opinions of key stakeholders, including staff, pupils and parents. Governors use this information well to improve the school further. Governors have a wealth of experience and expertise. However, they do not rest on their laurels and are continually accessing further training to keep on top of their game”.  Ofsted 2018
