We have an outstanding Governing body made up of Local Authority, Community and Parent Governors. Governors are volunteers who want to make a positive contribution to children's education. The values and vision for leading the school are shared between the Governing body, Headteacher and Senior Leadership Team (SLT). The day to day management of the school is the responsibility of the Headteacher and staff.
West Sussex information about the role of School Governors can be found here, if you are interested in applying to become a governor please contact Clerk to Governors on 01903 742047 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Individual information and pictures of our governors are below. Details of any business interests declared together with attendance at meetings over the last year can be found here.
Our Terms of Reference can be found here.
None of our Governors are governors for other schools nor do they have any relationship with members of our school staff. The Headteachers and Chairs of Governors work together as part of the STARS Partnership Group - this document outlines the Mission Statement and Terms of Reference for the Group.
To contact our Governors please email email@example.com or call the school office on 01903 742047.
