Our Governors are happy to help, answer queries or deal with concerns at any time and may be contacted through our school office. You may write, phone, or visit in person. If you would like to speak to a governor, than leave your details at the office and they will endeavour to return your call as soon as possible. Our Parent Governors are often in the playground before and after school, and are happy to be approached. In addition, there is a Governor presence at every parent consultation evening, and they would love to talk to you.


Our Governors, whilst thoroughly enthusiastic and committed to supporting the whole school community, are volunteers and have busy working lives of their own. Please be aware that whilst they will make every effort to respond to your queries promptly, there may be occasions when this is not possible. Our school operates an open door policy, and the Headteacher and Assistant Headteachers are always happy to make time for you if they are in the building.  In addition, you may always follow the procedures laid out in our school Complaints Procedure. This can be found in our Policies section.



In order to carry out our role efficiently and effectively the detailed work of the Governing Body is under taken by three main committees, other committees are called as and when required. The Committees report back to termly meetings of the Governing Body at which broader issues are discussed and agreed.
