The work of the Governing Body is largely unseen, but it is very important to the overall smooth running of the school. Each governor serves for a fixed term. Minutes of all meetings are held in the school and may, given reasonable notice, be viewed at the request of any parent. Governors will be pleased to receive any views parents may have.
Governors are required to declare any relevant business interests that could present a conflict of interest including whether they are a governor at another school. None of our Governors have declared any such interest.
