Our Governors

Who are the School Governors?

School governors are a team of people who work closely with the head teacher to make key strategic decisions vital to the successful running of the school. The governors appoint the head teacher and make decisions that directly affect the education and well-being of the children. They play an important role in improving standards throughout the school and agree the school’s budget. In other words, it’s a very important and ultimately rewarding role.
