I am concerned about my child or the school

If you do have any concerns about your child or the school in general, please contact the class teacher and/or the Head in the first instance. If you then still feel concerned after these meetings please contact one of our parent governors who are appointed to help you and to represent your views.

Who are governors?

The governors of a school are a group of volunteers who work with the Head Teacher and the other staff to ensure that the pupils receive the best possible education.

The Governing Body comprises of a combination of parents of children in the school, members of school staff, members of the local community, people appointed by the local authority and the Head Teacher.

What do Governors do?


  • provide a strategic view of where the school is heading.
  • act as a ‘critical friend’ to the school.
  • hold the school to account for the educational standards it achieves and the quality of education it provides.

Governors do not:

  • manage the school on a day-to-day basis.
  • provide specific guidance on teaching.
  • support the school so much that they cannot identify possible improvements.
