Governors

 

We are extremely proud of our Governing Body and appreciate the support they give to the school. Our Governing Body provides challenge through its close monitoring of standards and involvement in the daily running of our schools. The Governors all have a clear understanding of their roles and responsibilities and are an asset to our schools.

 

Governors Intent Statement

 

As Governors we endorse the Schools` vision and  will do everything we can to

ensure  that  ALL  of our pupils leave us ready to take the next step in their education.

They  will   be  ready  academically , socially and spiritually having realised their full potential regardless of the challenges they face. As a team of  Staff , Parents and Governors we will do this by helping our children develop the school values: Compassion, Creativity, Curiosity, Confidence. We will work closely with the Leaders of our schools providing support and constructive challenge.

 

As a Church School we confidently take our values from our Christian Belief.
