Return to Our School


School governors have a general responsibility to parents and the Local Education Authority for the effective management of the school, acting within the framework set by national legislation, and by the policies of the Local Education Authority.

The full Governing Board meets six times each year and appoints working parties who follow up specific areas of school management and report to the full Governing Board.
