Governing Body

Our governors act as ‘critical friends’ to the school. They attend meetings and help to determine the overall direction and vision as well as school policy. They help us to monitor developments within the school and provide a sounding board for dealing with issues of all kinds. They freely give their time to help the school and we are extremely grateful for all that they do. Governors attend all meetings of the Full Governing Body (FGB) which are held six times a year. In addition, some are also members of sub Committees.

Information about our governors

Our chair of Governors is Phil Shepherd. Phil has been a governor since  2001 and as chair serves on both Standards and Resources committees.

Our Vice Chair role is currently held jointly by Maggie Kippen and Helen Flynn
