Governors

Amongst many other things, the governors set the strategy and long term vision of the school, monitor its performance and standards.

Governors come from all sorts of backgrounds and the board is made up of those with many years of experence as well as newer parents of the school. If you wish to get in touch with the school, you can find more details on the Contact Us page. In the first instance, we encourage you to speak to your child’s class teacher about any issues you might have, but in some cases, you may feel the need to contact the Head Teacher or  Governing Body.

We are very open to hearing your thoughts, feedback, concerns or issues and we are very happy for you to contact the Chair and/or Vice Chair (also a parent at the school) via the email addresses below.
