The Governing Body is responsible for making sure the school improves each year. It sets the direction and ensures that the school is meeting its targets, while allowing the headteacher and teaching professionals to manage the school on a day-to-day basis.

Governors attend meetings where reports on the school’s progress are discussed. They test information received by asking the right questions to ensure that the school spends its budget wisely against the priorities shown in the school plan.

Dr Ian Craig was co-opted as Chair of the Governing Body in November 2016. Governors may be Trust, Staff, Parent or Foundation Governors and are elected and/or nominated to serve. A list of our present Governing Body plus their roles and responsibilities can be accessed below.
