Our Governors

The Governors work very closely with the school and are responsible for ensuring that all subjects within the National Curriculum are studied. Copies of school policies can be read by parents at school, as can copies of our OFSTED Inspections and SIAMS (Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools) inspections.

They have approved the County’s Agreed Syllabus with regard to Religious Education and we enjoy close links with St. Leonards Church where we hold our Harvest Festival, Christmas Carol/Christingle Service and other services throughout the year. The daily act of worship is based on Christian principles and values and is in accordance with the Educational Reform Act of 1988. We endeavour to adhere to the principles of the School’s foundation as a Church of England school. Parents have the right to withdraw their children from all or part of the religious education and collective worship provided.
