Governors

Governors

As governors we have a responsibility to monitor and challenge the work of the school to ensure all pupils’ needs are met.  

The school's governing body consists of nominees from the Local Education Authority (LA), staff, parents and representatives from the local community.  All parents are eligible to stand for election as one of four parent governors with full voting rights.  A governor's term of office is four years.

We try to visit the school as often as is practical.  Areas covered by governor visits include Business Week, Passion Day, Maths WOW Days, International Assembly, school trips, Ofsted meetings, assemblies, subject link visits and much more.

Parents are welcome to contact a governor directly, some of the governors are often to be found at school at the start and end of the school day and are very approachable!   Letters to the governing body should be addressed to the Chair of Governors and delivered to the school office, our Chair of Governors can also be contacted via email on njrobinson@waitrose.com.

Whilst we welcome letters and value your comments, issues relating to the day to day running of the school (including complaints) should, in the first instance, be referred to the Headteacher.
