Governors

Welcome to the Governor section of our school’s website.
We hope to add items we feel will be of interest to you and which will help to keep you informed about what we as governors do and are responsible for here in school.

Governors Mission Statement

It is our job to support and challenge the school in its aim to achieve its pupils’ potential in all subjects as well as to prepare them with the skills and knowledge for their future in an ever changing world.

Aims:

To assist and provide support to the school in its mission to become an excellent school and to aspire to be an outstanding governing body to work closely with and be a ‘critical friend’ to the Senior Leadership Team.

Equality Statement:

To celebrate our diversity and build an understanding of all the groups within it. We see all learners and their parents and carers as of equal value:

  • whether or not they have a disability or special education need;
  • whatever their ethnicity, culture, religious or non-religious affiliation or faith;
  • whatever their gender, gender identity or sexuality;
  • whatever their socio economic status.
