Governors

Welcome to our Governor's section. 

 

School Governors are the strategic leaders of our school and have a vital role to play in making sure every child gets the best possible education. 

 

Governors have a strong focus on three core strategic functions:

a) Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction;

b) Holding the headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils

c) Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent

 

The name of our Chair of Governors is Mr. Rick Mullin and he can be contacted using the school contact details which can be found in the 'About Us' section of the website.
