Our Local Education Committee is a hard-working group, that gives their time voluntarily to ensure our school delivers the best it can for your children.

The Governing Body of our school is made up of parents and expert members of the local community who are passionate about delivering the best possible educational opportunities and outcomes for the children in our Nursery and Primary School.

We take our roles very seriously and regularly complete skills audits to make sure we have the right people with the right experience to help us make good decisions that are ambitious for our children.

Our work is wide and varied, but at its heart, it’s about working closely with school staff, parents and children to collectively, ‘Inspire, Believe, Achieve’.
