Governors and Staff


Our school governors meet at least once every half term. They hold a responsible position and oversee the organisation of the school, the curriculum and manage the building and school budget. They also have a responsibility to parents/carers, staff and pupils.

Parents/carers are welcome to apply for positions of Governor as they become vacant. Please speak to the Head Teacher or Parish Priest if you are interested.
