Governors

Welcome to our Governors' section.

We have a strong Governing Body with a wealth of experience in Education as well as business. The Governing Body supported and challenged the school during our recent postponed expansion program, ensuring that the school was well represented in all meetings with the Local Authority and Slater Primary as part of the Waterside Committee.
We have a wide range of governors in place but are particularly pleased to be able to welcome parent and staff governors back into our school governance.
