Meet the Governors

The School is led by Mrs Brindle the Headteacher with her Leadership Team.  Supporting Mrs Brindle is our highly experienced Governing Body.  The Governors come from various areas of the community and give their time and expertise on a voluntary basis.  We are very lucky to have such a dedicated team of people supporting the school community.  The governing body was re-constituted in July 2015.  As part of the reconstitution each governor will complete a skills audit and undergo an annual appraisal to determine the correct skill set is in place to offer the best service possible.  You can download the competency framework and handbook as published by the Department for Education on this page.

It is a requirement for schools to publish a Register of Interests for each of its Governors, we have therefore published this information below.  A blank copy of the Register of Interests can be downloaded from this page for further information.
