Governors

Governors stand for four years and they form important links between the school, parents and the local community.

Our governors have three main roles :

  • Critical friend – Providing encouragement and honest feedback.
  • Accountability – Ensuring that the school is effectively run, and continually improving.
  • Strategic – Helping the headteacher decide how the school should be run.

These roles are delivered mainly through two committees that report to the full governing body (FGB):

The Finance and Resources Committee (F&R), chaired by Andrew Newman.
The School Improvement Committee (SIC), chaired by Linda Morris.

Our governors are:
