The Governing Body is made up of staff, parents, local authority representatives, local business representatives, community members and the Headteacher. They are committed to taking an active role in school life in order to support and challenge the school to the highest standards. They have a general responsibility for managing the school effectively.

Governors meet on many occasions during the school year and are particularly responsible for helping to decide on the school’s curriculum, to help with the appointment of staff, to assist in setting standards of behaviour, to oversee the school budget and to support the Headteacher and staff.
