Governors

The Board of Governors works with the school's Leadership Team to help determine the strategic direction of the school. Governors also play a key role in school accountability, reviewing the performance of pupils and setting objectives for future school development. The Board of Governors oversees how the school's funding is spent in order to meet those objectives.

 

The Board of Governors is currently made up of 14 governors: Parent, Co-opted, Local Authority and Staff Governors.

 

Parent Governors: Kerry Booth, Nick Darwen, Emma Richards (Chair of Curriculum and Standards Committee) and Dave Whitehead (Chair of Resources Committee). 

Co-opted Governors: Martin Davis, Jonathan Fox, Tim Lester, Christine Morris, Anthony Orr, Andrew Parsons (Chair of Governors) and Sarah Powell (Deputy Head Teacher).

Local Authority Governor: Raminder Mann .

Staff Governors: Liz Merrick.

Head Teacher Governor: Richard Siviter.

 

Andrew Parsons, the Chair of Governors, can be contacted via the school office.

Declaration of Interests

 

The Governing Board annually requires its members to register any relevant business interests and any involvement as a governor with other educational establishments. This was done at the September meeting of the Governing Board. No interests were declared in respect of business or financial matters, or in relation to governance roles in other schools.
