We act strategically and have three core functions:

  • Setting the vision and strategic direction of the school;
  • Holding the head teacher to account for the school’s educational performance; and
  • Ensuring financial resources are well spent.

To fulfil these functions, the full governing body meets 6 times a year to discuss Learning and Teaching and the efficient and effective use of school finances. 

For correspondence with the Chair of Governors please address to Mrs L. Robins and deliver via the school office.
