Governor Meeting News

Our Governors meet regularly throughout the year to review the school actions, and to support, monitor and challenge the Headteacher, to ensure that the school achieves its aim of giving every child the best possible education in a fulfilling environment.

At the end of every Governing Body meeting, we look back at the items we have covered during the meeting and ask ourselves the following question:

"What have we achieved tonight that will improve outcomes for our children?"
