Governing Body Members

We are a ‘Voluntary Aided’ Church of England school provided initially by the Church Trustees. Governors have responsibility for areas such as admissions, safeguarding, curriculum, staffing, resources and financial management. The Governing Body meets regularly and much of the basic work of the Governors takes place through its committees, most commonly the Curriculum Committee (includes pupil welfare/online safety) and Resources Committee (includes staffing /finances/buildings).

Our Governors also get involved in a wide range of activities in school in their role of both support and challenge to the school community.

This table shows membership at the beginning of the school year.
