Our Governors are all volunteers and help to lead the school. Their role is one of strategic leadership, leaving the day to day management of the school to the Headteacher. Declarations of pecuniary and non-pecuniary interests are a standing item on Full Governing Body meeting agendas.
There are four categories of Governors:
- Parent Governors - we have 2 of these who are elected by the parents and serve for 4 years.
- Foundation Governors - we have 7 of these who are appointed by the Parish and the Diocese. Some of these people are also parents and the Vicar (Mr. Nichol) is an ex-officio officer. They serve for 4 years too and can be re-appointed.
- Local Authority Governor - we have 1 of these and s/he is appointed by the Local Authority, serves for four years and may be re-appointed.
- Staff Governor - there is 1 of these, representing the teachers and non-teaching staff. They are elected by the staff and serve for 4 years.
The Headteacher is also a Governor.
