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.

Governor Vacancies

Every school has a board of governors who work in partnership with the school to give children the best start in life. 


We're classified as 'outstanding' by Ofsted, became a National Support School in 2017 and we’re consistently over-subscribed, the third most over-subscribed in the county! We believe every child has the right to the highest standard of education and to be literate and numerate are non-negotiable. Our children’s achievements are due to our excellent staff who focus on high quality teaching and learning, enabling them to enjoy today and prepare for tomorrow.


We have vacancies for co-opted governors to join our board to support the school to uphold its ‘outstanding’ status. To be a co-opted governor, you wouldn’t have a connection to the school, religion, or the local authority. Co-opted governors, in the opinion of the governing board, have the skills required to contribute to the effective governance and success of the school.


We welcome applications from volunteers from all backgrounds, who are passionate about children's education and are keen and willing to learn. You should also be willing and able to commit time to visit the school to carry out various activities expected of governors.


We meet informally when needed, with a full governing board with the school six times a year during term time.
