We currently (February 2020) have a vacancy for one co-opted governor and one parent governor. Co-opted governors are members of the local community and who value the very important role early years development plays in the education of our children.  Parent governors are volunteers who have parental responsibility for a child in the school at the date of their appointment; they serve for a period of two years. If you are interested in taking on either of these roles please contact the school.

Members of the Governing Body can be contacted via reception.

Former Governors:

Vitalija Petraviciute: parent governor from 02/02/2016 to 01/02/2020

Kristie Purcell: previously a parent governor from September 2017 to July 2018.
