Welcome to the Governors' Section
The Governors are the formal strategic body who meet once each term to set priorities for the school and agree on the long term plans including the school budget. This section includes minutes of their meetings, information about vacancies and the different types of governors.
If you would like to contact any of our Governors please send a letter for their attention via the school office:
St George's Road
Parents are asked to put their requests or complaints in writing to the Governing Body as the Governors are not based in school and only meet formally once a term.
If you have any questions about our Board of Governors, please do not hesitate to contact Mr Choudhary (Clerk for Governors). Our Governors are volunteers from the local school community who work together to ensure that the school is well managed. The Headteacher and representatives from the school work force are also members of the Governing Body.
