Meet the Governors

The School governors are a team of people who work closely with Mrs Hill our Headteacher to make key decisions, which are vital to the successful running of our school. The governors appoint the head teacher and make decisions that directly affect the education and well-being of the children. They play an important role in improving standards throughout the school by supporting and challenging the head teacher, as well as agreeing the school's budget.

This area of the website introduces each of our governors and informs you of their role.

As a school we recognise that a diversity of thought, voices and perspectives is essential to good governance and the effective running of any organisation.  We regularly collect diversity information from our governors and depending on current data, can use this to

  • target recruitment to address gaps in experience and diversity.
  • develop and adapt board practices to ensure full participation.
  • prioritise training and awareness- raising in identified areas.
  • address potential ‘blind spots’ through seeking wider advice and perspectives on current and upcoming opportunities, challenges and risks.

However, we are unable to publish this information as it would mean that individual members of our governing body are identifiable.

Governor's Day

Recently we invited members of our Governing body into school to spend time with the staff and children.  The Governors thoroughly enjoyed being in school during a working day instead of being in an empty building in the evening!  They were very complimentary about school and especially how polite and welcoming the children had been and how they had spoken confidently about their learning.  We owe a big thank you to all our Governors who give their time and commitment to support and guide school entirely voluntarily.
