Welcome to our Governors’ section.
This page will be updated with the new committee structure after the First Full Governing Body Meeting in November 2023
Please find below details of how our Governing body is structured, including the names, categories, responsibilities and terms of appointment for each Governor. We keep a record of attendance at meetings which are kept in the School Governors File in the School Office. Governors may be part of either or both committees (Resources or Curriculum). Meetings are held after school in the Nursery Classroom or via Teams online video calling as appropriate.
