Governors have legal duties, powers and responsibilities. They can only act together, they cannot act individually.
Governors are appointed to help:
  • decide what is taught
  • set standards of behaviour
  • interview and select staff
  • agree how the school budget is spent
Governors are chosen from:
  • parents
  • school staff
  • community representatives
  • people with special skills
Parent governors are elected by parents and are your representatives on the governing body.
Some of our governors are also parents of children at the school but are appointed in a different capacity. 
The governors meet twice a term as a full governing body.  Governors visit school regularly and take part in ‘Learning Walks’ and attend committee meetings for various aspects of school life.
They can be contacted on:  or through the school office.
There is also a Governors comments box in the office.
The Clerk to the Governors is Debbie Scott who can be contacted by email at the following address:  or by ringing the school office on 01529 488667.

It is an honour to be Headteacher of this wonderful school and form part of its long history.

Out of school, I also enjoy being active through long distance running and playing cricket and golf.
