Governors play a vital role in helping the principal and staff to ensure our children get the best from their time in our academy. They are the largest volunteer force in the country and have an important part to play in raising standards through their three key roles of setting strategic direction, ensuring accountability and monitoring and evaluating our performance.

Governors need to have time to dedicate to their role, to make good decisions and to make sure their decisions are followed up. Together with the principal they set the future direction for the school and perform a number of key duties.

Our Governors are happy to help, answer queries or deal with concerns at any time and may be contacted through our office. You may write, phone or visit in person. If you would like to speak to a governor, then leave your details at the office and they will endeavour to return your call as soon as possible. 

Our Governors, whilst thoroughly enthusiastic and committed to supporting the whole school community, are volunteers and have busy working lives of their own. Please be aware that whilst they will make every effort to respond to your queries promptly, there may be occasions when this is not possible, however, you may speak to the principal or any member of our leadership team.
