School governors are people from the school’s community who wish to make a positive contribution to children’s education. They must be aged 18 or over at the date of their election or appointment. Persons under 18 may become Associate Members.  There is no upper age limit.

Governors form the largest volunteer force in the country and have an important part to play in raising school standards through their three key roles of setting strategic direction, ensuring accountability and monitoring and evaluating school performance.

"A governing body's overriding responsibility is to work in partnership with the head teacher to promote continuous improvement in the performance of the school.  This involves the establishment of a development plan, the setting of challenging but achievable targets and the interpretation of information to access progress and determine appropriate action.

Aligned to its improvement role, the governing body is there to be a critical friend who can provide the right balance between supporting and challenging the performance of both the head teacher and the school." (School Governor Recruitment Toolkit)


We are grateful to our Governing Body for their ongoing support and guidance. Below are highlights from the Governor Detail files attached to this page:

We have 8 members on the Governing Body, made up of 2 Parent Governors and 6 Co-opted Governors (appointed by the Trust).  We currently have a vacancy for a Staff Governor.  The Governing Body is Chaired by Clare Dent and she is supported by Vice-Chair, Sean Currie.

The work of the Governing Body is supported by various committees.  We have three Governor Committee Groups and a Headteacher’s Performance Management Group: The Resources Committee is Chaired by Ketan Lad, Teaching Learning and Outcomes Committee is Chaired by Clare Dent and the Well-being and Safeguarding Committee is Chaired by Mona Mehta.  The Headteacher’s Performance Management Group is made up of 2 members.   Governors also have linked responsibilities to SEN, Pupil Premium, Health and Safety, Safeguarding, More Able Pupils, Early Years and School Finance.

The Governing Body meet as Board 6 times a year, and the committees meet once a term.  Average attendance to date is 95% across all Governors.

The Clerk to the Governors is Mrs Kathryn Berrill.
