The Governors

The Governors are a group of people passionate about education. The Governors oversee the strategic direction of the school and evaluate progress towards goals that improve the school. They do this through regular Committee Meetings that look at Standards, Premises, Personnel and Finance. They also meet termly as a whole Governing Body.
As part of their work they make regular visits in to school to look at pupil progress, safeguarding, SEN, teaching and learning and many other aspects of the school. They do this by monitoring data, talking to the children and staff and observing the every day workings of the school.
