School governors

A word from the Chair of GovernorsAb

It is a privilege to chair the governors of this caring Christian school, where we aim for everyone to fulfil their potential. We are fortunate to have such a capable and committed staff, as well as warm support from the families and churches in our community.

As governors we ensure that the school is efficiently run in line with its Christian aims, statutory requirements and Ofsted and Department of Education guidelines.

We have three core functions:

  • setting the vision, ethos and strategic direction of the school;
  • holding the Headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school;
  • overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent.

We guide and monitor the school through three main committees:

  • Resources
  • Teaching and Learning
  • Faith and Life

The minutes of these committees are publicly available on request, click here to contact the school.
