The Governing Board

Our Governing Board

Every school has a Governing Board composed of parent governors, people from the local community, teaching staff and the headteacher. As a church school our Governing Board also includes the Parish Vicar, five governors elected by the Parochial Church Council as well as a member of the Comberbach Trust, who own the land and the school building.

Governors are responsible for the effective management of our school, acting within the framework set out by national legislation and the policies of the Local Authority and the Diocese.  A key responsibility is helping to set strategic direction for the school and we share a committed focus on continuing to drive school performance.

Governor meeting minutes are available on the website under Meeting Minutes section.
