Governors’ Meetings are held on a regular basis throughout the year and cover a wide range of issues.

The Governors contribute fully to the discussions and decisions relating to the strategic vision for the school, and bring a variety of perspectives to these debates. They ensure that the Headteacher is fully held to account in a robust way as a critical friend.
