Create.... Belong.... Achieve....



The role of the Board of Governors is to work closely with the Head teacher and staff to provide the very best education that we can for the children of our school. We are responsible for monitoring and evaluating the performance and effectiveness of the school, for ensuring that the budget is managed prudently and for supporting our excellent staff.

As governors, we want all our children to develop to their full potential academically and socially, so that they become responsible and caring adults in their later lives.

Governors achievements have been: 

Governors plans for the future are: 

Cathy Medlow, Chair or Governor 

Teresa McAleer, Vice Chair of Governors
