Governors may be contacted via the Clerk, who may in turn be contacted at the school. Confidentiality will be assured at all times. The papers of the Governing Body, excluding any information deemed by them to be confidential, are available for inspection via the Clerk.  The Governors publish an annual school profile in July available on line at: 

The Governing Body, working in partnership with the head and staff of the school, is the agency through which the school is accountable to the Local Education Authority and other bodies, both for its use of public funds and its effectiveness. It is also there to ensure good relationships between the school and the community it serves. School Governors have legal duties, powers and responsibilities but cannot act individually. They work together within a set of rules and their work takes the form of decisions made together at full Governing Body meetings or sub-committee meetings. They are responsible for ensuring that the school gives parents the information they are entitled to by law and for ensuring fairness to individual pupils and staff. Each Governor spends time in school on a regular basis when the children are present.

Governing Body for the 2016/17 year is as follows:

Mr A Priestley   Parent Governor (Acting Chair of Governors) 

Mrs H Turner     Parent Governor

Mrs P Abbott     Co-opted Governor

Mrs C Gilkes      Co-opted Governor
