Governors

Welcome to our Governors' section. 


Please find below details of how our Governing body is structured, including the names, categories, responsibilities and terms of appointment for each Governor.


We have also provided a Register of Governor Interests and an Annual Statement of Issues for your information.

Governors

The school’s governors are all closely involved with the school either as parents, former parents or as members of the community with an active interest in supporting the school and nursery.

We work closely with the school’s Senior Leadership Team and Parent Teachers Association to ensure that the school and nursery continues as a joyous, safe and aspirational place for our children, and a caring friendly environment for all our families.

Whether you are a current or prospective parent, or perhaps a prospective member of staff, we encourage you to become part of the family that is our school and nursery, to join in with school events and enjoy our peaceful setting next door to the beautiful church of St Mary Magdalene.
