The governors are responsible for setting and maintaining the ethos and strategic direction of the school. This includes ensuring that the school is assisting each student to achieve high standards and make good progress. In doing so they act as critical friends, supporting and challenging the school to provide each and every student with the opportunity to achieve their full potential within a safe and secure environment.

School governors have a varied and important role…


The governors work with the headteacher and other school staff to promote high standards of educational achievement at the school.  In setting the strategic direction for the school they help decide how the school should develop in order to maintain and improve its standards of education, and approve the policies, plans and procedures which will support that development.

Meetings of the local governing body take place at least once each term.  There is a clear committee structure and most committees meet at least once per year.  Each governor is linked to a subject or an aspect of school life to help build a relationship with school personnel and gain knowledge of how the school works. 

We work hard to ensure that decisions made are based on a secure knowledge of the school to create the most favourable conditions:


  • For learning to flourish and achievements are high

  • Overseeing financial performance of the school and ensuring money is well spent

  • For a safe, secure, and pleasant environment to learn/work in

  • To promote sound organisation

  • For a safe, secure, and pleasant environment to learn/work in

  • To adopt and implement policies which are fair, and which encourage good student behaviour, motivate staff and students, and for everyone to achieve their potential
