The Role of the Governing Body 

We have a very hard working and dedicated Governing Body and their role is to help to provide a strategic vision for the school. They work closely with the headteacher to decide on the school’s future priorities and then act as a critical friend in monitoring the school’s performance and effectiveness. This is achieved in a variety of ways including regular visits to the school to liaise with staff, children and parents. They also produce a regular newsletter which highlights their role and work.

You can view a list of our current Governors and their roles HERE.




In order to delegate and share the responsibilities of the Governing Body more effectively and efficiently, there are two main sub-committees.  The Committees are a flexible way of dealing with specific or fairly detailed matters and offer individual governors wider opportunities to apply their personal expertise. The two main sub-committees are:

  • Learning and Development
  • Resources

Our Chair of Governors is Mr Oliver Helm and, like all the governors, he can be contacted via the school office or via the Clerk to Governor, Jessica Benger at,
