Governing Body

The Governors Vision Statement

The Governing Body’s vision is to inspire excellence, champion potential and empower learning, every student matters and thrives. It’s simple and founded on a desire to make a difference. We aim to enable every student to flourish by encouraging their unique strengths and interest. We recognise that every student is always our starting point. In addition, to academic achievement, our focus is to ensure every student’s social emotional and personal development is achieved, giving them the tools to become effective adults. 

Governors Strategic Plan

• To ensure that students experience a Quality of Education that is ‘good’ or better

• To recover learning lost due to the pandemic

• To lead or become part of a collaborative family of schools

• To work with the LA to ensure school finances are healthy and sustainable 

We have recently introduced an email to enable parents to contact Governors with any queries or relevant questions.
