Welcome to our Governors page. We are a dedicated and enthusiastic group of volunteers who are committed to supporting and challenging our school, in order to ensure that all of our children receive the best possible learning experience. We are all very proud of our children and staff, and recognise their incredible work. No matter how amazing a school is, there are always development area, and it is our role to ensure that our School Improvement Plan represents these areas, and that we continue to move forward.
Our governing body is currently made up of a combination of parent governors, staff governors, Foundation governors, authority governors and co-opted governors:
Parent governors - Carol Purchase, Rebecca Hyder, Jennifer Thomas.
Foundation governors - John Tattersfield, Margaret Hicking and 1 vacancy.
Staff governors - Karen Hollingworth, John Graham.
Authority governors - Jack Tweed.
Co-opted governors - Frank Knowles (Chair), Sarah Lee (Vice Chair), Lucy Peck, Zuri Djan, Diane Griffin, Belinda Clark.
The full governing body meets once a term. The agenda and minutes are displayed on the governor notice board at the end of the main corridor. There are currently two sub committees (Education, Welfare and Personnel committee and Finance and General Purposes committee) which meet when needed. A copy of our full minutes are also attached to this page.
