Our Governors

We have a very supportive Governing Body whose members are fully involved in the life of the school. Many Governors are parents, and each one gives their time voluntarily to take on the responsibilities required of them. The governors have a wide variety of skills and experience which they use to help the school improve.


Governors of the School are appointed by Trustees for a four-year term.


Parent Governors are elected by parents and are eligible for office so long as they have a child in our School.


The Governing Body meets at least once every term. 


The Governors work hard to support the needs of the whole school - the children, the staff, the parents and its place in the community. Talk to the Governors with any feedback you may have.  The Chair of Governors is Mr Brian Payne and can be contacted by email:
