Governors

Each school has its own Governing Body made up of representatives of the Local Education Authority (LEA), the Local Authority, the teachers, the parents and the Head teacher.

 

The full Governing Body meets at least once a term to discuss matters relating to the running of the school and to take an active interest in our school. In addition, various committees meet regularly in order to discuss specific items such as staffing or finance.  Elections for the Parent Governors take place every four years.

 

If you have any queries about our Governoning Body please contact:
