Our Governors have an important role in our school.  They meet regularly in full governing body meetings and in sub-committees to lead and manage our school, but they are also regularly seen helping in school and at school events, as well as overseeing and monitoring school development. Governors regularly attend training relevant to their roles and offer support for all aspects of school life.

 Our Governing Body has twelve members, who are proposed and elected by various interests.  Two of our Governors are Parent Governors who are voted for by parents and carers of the children in school.  The Chair and Vice-Chair are elected, annually, at the first meeting of the year in September.  The minutes of Governing Body meetings, with the exception of matters deemed confidential, are available for inspection in the school office. Please contact the clerk if you wish to see them. At the AGM, Declaration of Business Interests forms are completed. At each governor meeting, declarations of interest are declared.

 Mr Neil Milligan is the Chair of the Governing Body. You are able to contact Neil, via email, at:  Please mark your email to the attention of Neil Milligan.

 Governing Body Diversity Data

As a Governing Body, we have a duty to recognise that diverse thoughts, voices and perspectives are essential to good governance and the effective running of any organisation.

 We believe it is important that our Governing Body reflects the diversity of the school communities which we serve. Diverse boards promote inclusive school environments and provide diverse role models for staff and children.

 The governors are currently gathering data on the diversity of our governors, including data on age, gender and ethnicity. We will use that data to inform recruitment and training needs and ensure there is always a diverse range of perspectives around the table to support robust decision making.

 We do not publish any diversity information that may disclose personal information about individual governors. This is due to our legal obligation to protect their personal data.
