Parent representatives on the Governing board are a doubly important part of our school and home partnership. Not only are they directly aware of the results of school policy on our children and are easily accessible to our parents, but they can bring a variety of skills needed in the present day governing of schools.

If you feel that you would like to help our school by becoming a Governor do please get in touch with our Headteacher, or Chair of Governors, who can tell you what is involved. There is an induction and mentoring programme for all new Governors.  

A leaflet summarising the role of the Parent Governor can be downloaded here too.
