Our Governors

The Governors take responsibility for the organisation and curriculum of the school, its finances, personnel and site. They work closely with the Headteacher as manager and meet together regularly throughout the school year.

The Governors each hold office for four years. They represent Derby City Council, the community, the parents and school staff. The staff and parent representatives are elected and the Governing Body is completed by the Headteacher.
