Our Governing Body

Whilst the whole Governing Body remains responsible for the governance function overall there are two distinct areas of work delegated by the Governing Body to a Teaching & Learning (Curriculum, Children and Staff) Team, and a Resources (Finance, ICT and Premises) Team.

The Teaching & Learning and Resources teams focus on the delivery of the annual School Development Plan in their respective areas, undertake monitoring and evaluation activities against these priorities and report to the Governing Body as a whole. These reports will then in turn inform strategy.

The full Governing Body meets 3 times each year to consider strategy, team reports and recommendations, make decisions and conduct routine business. You can contact the Chair of Governors via the School office or by email on
