We currently have two vacancies for co-opted governors and will be recruiting based on our skills audit.  We will be looking to appoint governors with experience of financial expertise, HR and staffing or publicity and marketing . If you feel you can bring these skills to our governing body then please contact us via the school office. Governors need to be able to offer a solid commitment to attend at least 1 meeting each half term, as well as attending additional training sessions as required and coming into school during the day to take part in monitoring and other experiences so please consider this before applying.

All governors are also members of the Business Committee. The full governing body meets once each term, and the business committee also meets one each term.

Governors can be contacted via the chair through the school office.

No governors have left the governing body in the last 12 months.
