The Chair of Governors is Mr M Patel.  Correspondence may be sent to the Chair of Governors via the school.

The Governors are local people who have taken the opportunity to be involved in the running of the school and to play a part in the education of our children. Our Governors are made up of representatives from the local community, from political parties, from the church, parents and staff. Other members have offered themselves to be co-opted on to the governing body itself or its committees.

The Governors work with the Headteacher and Senior Leadership Team to determine the aims and the curricular policy of the school.

Whenever a vacancy occurs for a parent governor the Headteacher will send written notice of the election in a letter to be taken home by pupils. If you would like to become a parent governor you can also apply in school.
