As a Church of England school, two of our Governors are known as Foundation Governors; they are appointed by the Diocese and their role is to have an especial care for the school’s Christian character.

SIAMS (which is separate to an Ofsted inspection) evaluates the distinctiveness and effectiveness of the school as a church school. At our most recent inspection in May 2015 the school was evaluated as Good.
We meet 6 times a year as a Full Governing Board and have a 2 committee structure that meet in-between. In those committees we focus on Finance and Resources and Learning and Development. We also spend time in school looking for evidence of inspirational practice and wonderful learning.
