Governing Board

NEWS: we are currently holding Parent Governor elections.  Please see the news pages for a video and bio on each candidate.


The Governing Board or Body of our school helps to ensure the quality of education provision and to act as the accountable body for the school. We do this by setting the strategic vision and the ethos of the school, together with monitoring and challenging the school’s performance, and recruiting and holding to account the Head Teacher.

The Governing Board is made up of 15 people.  Some members are elected and some are co-opted and include members of staff, parents, an appointee of the Local Authority and other local people; all of whom have the sole aim of seeing the wonderful children at the school receive the very best education possible.


If you wish to contact a member of the Governing Body, please speak to Robin or a member of the Office Team.

Challenge Partner Review Report (March 2018)

We had our Challenge Partner Quality Assurance Review in March.  This was led by an Ofsted Inspector and three senior leaders from other UK Primary Schools alongside our own Senior Leadership Team.

The team undertook joint lesson observations, learning walks, interviews with key staff teams and the children including School Council and Friendship Squad as well as looked at children’s books and their recorded learning.

I am delighted with the final report which reflects our strengths and the areas of development will further support the work we do.  The process was really useful for us as a school and I feel we are in a stronger position because of it.
