Staff & Governors

Meet the Team

Please find below a list of staff you may wish to contact if you have any specific questions or concerns. The school is open between 7:30am and 5:45pm and we would always prefer you to contact the school rather than have an unanswered question at home. Our link books are a useful way of contacting your child’s class teacher. Teachers are also around at the beginning and end of the school day, although if you have a matter that needs some discussion please make an appointment with the office.

School governors share a common belief that children should receive the best possible standard of education. School governing bodies reflect the diversity of the local community.

An effective governing body is a source of enormous strength to the school, and will be increasingly important in helping to deal with major issues such as the expansion of knowledge and resource, the type of change, the implications of faith, race and language and the influence of new technology.

The governing body have four main governors meetings a year, October, December, March and July. In addition there are two sub-committees that meet on a termly basis. The performance and standards sub-committee oversee the WEMPIP (School Improvement Plan), curriculum and community links. The resources sub-committee oversees finance, staffing, accommodation and the Head Teachers Performance Management. The matrix below gives information about each governor.
