Governance is a rapidly changing and responsive part of our School Trust. It is integral to the success of the Trust and the School.
Categories of Governor
Parent Governors: If you are a parent of a pupil(s) at the school or the primary carer, you can stand for election as one of the Parent Governor positions, (once a Parent Governor post becomes vacant). If more than one parent expresses an interest in filling a vacancy, elections are held in which all parents can vote.
Co – opted Governors: A Co – opted Governor is a person who in the opinion of the governing body, has the skills required to contribute to the effective governance and success of the school.
Staff Governor: A member of staff paid to work at the school and elected by the staff.
Headteacher: A member of the Governing Body by virtue of their office. If the Headteacher elects not to be a Governor then his/her place cannot be taken by anyone else.

Welcome Letter from the Chair
Welcome Letter from the Chair
Hello and welcome to our school and to our website. I have spent most of my career working to improve the lives of people in the local area and I am totally committed tocontinuing that as Chair of the School’s Local Governing Board.
The purpose of the Local Governing Board is to set the strategic direction of the school and we consider the local area, its residents and community to be key considerations in setting that strategy. We believe that all our children should receive a first-class education so that they can excel and are able to aspire to the future they want and deserve. The board will support and challenge the Head Teacher and staff to ensure that educational standards are the best they can be.
We are a good school and we continually strive to improve. Creating an environment within the school where children feel safe, happy and secure is of paramount importance and I believe the character and behaviour of our pupils is evidence that this has been achieved. I am always delighted with the politeness and friendliness of our children when I visit the school, however I think we can improve and will seek out the opinions of pupils to guide and inform our policies.
The Local Governing Board is made up of parent governors, staff governors, and appointed governors from the community, each bringing a wide range of knowledge and experience to the role. It is important that the voice of parents is represented, and our parent governors provide this vital link. We are keen to work in partnership with parents, guardians and carers so please come and chat to us when you see us at school, in the playground or at any school function. If you wish to contact me directly, please do not hesitate to do so either via the school, or by using the email address below.
