The Role of the Governor

The Governing Body of the school is made up of people from a variety of backgrounds. Some of the Governors are parents. The school governors comprise of a group of individuals, who are elected, nominated or co-opted and are representative of parents and teachers, the Local Education Authority and the local community. School governors work with the Headteacher and are responsible for setting the strategic direction of the school. Meetings are held at least once each term and committees meet in addition to main body meetings.

If you would like to be a school governor please contact the Headteacher to find out about any vacancies and ask for a Governor’s Information Pack.
