Governors

Chairperson's Message

"The role of a Governor is a varied one.  Our duties include the setting and monitoring of school finance,

which in the present climate can be a very challenging task! We agree and update school policies on a regular basis.

We meet each term and discuss many topics, including the curriculum.  Our overall aim is to give each and every pupil the

best possible opportunities and education.  As governors we work closely with the Headteacher, management team and staff;

who are all dedicated to the pupils and the success of our school.  The children enjoy their school day and this is evidenced

by our excellent attendance records.We have friendly staff and governors who can be approached to discuss the day

to day running of our happy and efficient school."
