Welcome to our Governors’ section.

Please find below details of how our Governing body is structured, including the names, categories, responsibilities and terms of appointment for each Governor.
We have also provided a Register of Governor Interests and an Annual Statement of Issues for your information.


The governing body is split into two sub-committees:


Resource and Management (R & M) responsible for:

- Finance & Budgeting

- Premises

- Health and Safety

- Human Resources


Performance and Standards (P & S) responsible for:

- Quality of teaching and learning

- Outcomes, progress and attainment

- Analysis of data

- Safeguarding

- Attendance


Each sub-committee meets once per half term and the full governing body meets twice in the autumn term, once in the spring and once in the summer term.
