Our Governors

As outlined in the Scheme of Delegation from DDAT, the Governors take responsibility for the organisation and curriculum of the school, its finances, personnel and site. They work closely with the Head teacher as manager and meet together regularly throughout the school year. 

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

Constitution of 9 governors.   

Should you wish to contact the Chair of Governors, please send a letter c/o the school or email Karen Phillips, our clerk to the Governors on karenphillipsclerktogovernors@gmail.com .

If you would like to see the agenda and minutes for any of the governors meetings, please contact the school office.
