Meet the Governors

Welcome to our Governors’ section.

Please find below details of how our Governing body is structured, including the names, categories, responsibilities and terms of appointment for each Governor.


A governor role can be a difficult and demanding role, but also produces its own rewards when we can see the standards of care and evidence of hard work and dedication of all the members of the teaching and non-teaching staff and being a part of the difference our schools make to our children.


All boards of governors, whether in the maintained our academy sector and no matter how many schools they are responsible for, have three core functions:

  1. Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction;
  2. Holding the headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and it's pupils, and the performance of the school and its pupils, and the performance management of staff; and
  3. Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent.

Governance Handbook November 2015


All governors give their time freely and are a dedicate team of volunteers including parents, church, community and staff governors here to support the work of the federation and to act with the best interest of all our pupils. We also undertake training and keep up to date with policies and legislation so that we can be the best we can be. Visiting School to monitoring work, attend assemblies and meetings.


We have also provided a Register of Governor Interests and an Annual Statement of Issues for your information.
