School Governors

Welcome to our Governor Page.

 

We have reconstituted and finalised the structure of our Governing Body in line with new regulations. The new structure is 12 Governors in total: 1 Headteacher, 1 other staff governor, 4 parent governors, 1 local authority governor and 5 co-opted governors. We also have 2 associate governors who support a particular committee but do not need to attend full governing body meetings.

 

If you are interested in becoming a school governor please contact the Clerk to Governors, Janet Runagle or Headteacher, Fiona Hughes. There are no full governor vacancies at present but we can appoint extra associate governors to assist in a particular area where appropriate.  Alternatively we can bear you in mind if/when a vacancy arises.
