Meet the Governors

We, the school governing body, have an important role to play.  Our main purpose is to provide a strategic and policy framework within which the school is run.  It is the responsibility of the Headteacher and staff to guide and advise governors, implement the plans and deliver the curriculum.

The Governing Body is responsible for supporting the high expectations, being a ‘critical friend’ to the school and holding it to account.

If you are interested in being a governor, then please enquire, in the first instance, at the school office.

To contact Mrs Sheetal Patel or Mrs Najma Sabat, our co-chairs of Governors, please contact the school office.
