The Governors’ Register of Business Interests currently contains no declaration of any relevant interests by any current governor or any governor in post in the last 12 months.

Every half term the two Committees meet to support the school leadership team.  There is also a full Governing Body meeting every half term, where strategic decisions are made.

The Curriculum Committee meets during the day time and monitors the teaching and learning that goes on at school.  The Resources Committee meets in the evening and is responsible for premises, staffing and financial management.
