The Governors are the management committee of the school. The Governors work with the Senior Leadership Team (SLT) to create a clear vision, ethos and an appropriate strategic direction. The Governing body provides very good supporting challenge to senior leaders. They work tirelessly to ensure the school has the provision and resources it needs to carry out its services effectively. This challenge is largely carried out through the Committee structure as evidenced in the Committee meeting minutes. Exceptions identified within Committee meetings are brought for resolution to the Full Governing Body


Local Authority Governors are nominated and approved by the Local Authority, Co-opted Governors are nominated and approved by the Governing Body, Parents are nominated by parents and staff are nominated by staff.

Please contact the school if you would like to become a Governor, there is currently one vacancy for a Coopted Governor with financial experience. It is very important that parents have a voice in the working of the school.If you might be interested and would like to know more please contact the school.

Parent Governor


School governors are volunteers who help to run the school. They’re involved in decisions about all aspects of managing the school – such as running buildings and budgets, supporting staff and ensuring standards and effectiveness.

Governors also help to make big decisions about the school’s long-term goals. They ask questions and make sure the Headteacher is taking the school in the right direction.

Who can be a parent Governor?


All parents other than those employed at the school for more than 500 hours per year or who are elected members of the Local Authority (LA) are eligible to stand for election.  This includes:


  • parents of children attending nursery either full-time or part-time


  • any person who is not the natural parent but has parental responsibility for or who has care of a pupil registered at the school (Education Act 1996, Section 576)


If you are interested in becoming a Governor please contact school for a nomination form.


Nominees must be proposed by a parent of a pupil registered at the school.


A parent may nominate his/her partner.


Where the number of nominations is equal to, or fewer than, the places available no ballot will be necessary.  Any remaining vacancies will be appointed by our Governing Body.


Should a ballot be required each parent will be sent a voting form.


When the process has been finalised school will inform the parent body via our website. School and Governor Support Service will write formally to all nominees confirming the outcome of the ballot.
