The School Governors

The school governors all work together to help support the development of the school. They have clear responsibilities which they have to fulfil, including holding the leadership of the school to account to ensure that outcomes for all children continue to improve.

The school’s Chair of Governors is Niema Bohrayba who you are welcome to contact by using the school’s address – we will always ensure that any communication is passed on swiftly.

The school’s Governing Board has been restructured to ensure that governors are being responsive to the needs of the school community; the new structure is as follows:

Full Governing Body • Pay Committee
Headteacher Appraisal Committee • First Committee
Second Committee • Named Lead Governors responsible for monitoring key aspects of school provision

Governors are normally appointed or elected for a four year period and can serve further four year terms if re-appointed or re-elected. Sometimes a governor has to leave for personal reasons before the four years has ended. The Department for Education says that ‘governors hold an important public office and their identity should be known to their school and wider communities.’

Details of our governors attendance at meetings in the previous year can be found by clicking the button at the bottom of this page.

Because governors hold an important public office, they are asked each year to sign a declaration about any business or personal interest they have which might conflict with being a governor. None of the present governors has declared such an interest.

Please contact the Clerk to the Governing Board if you wish to view a copy of the Minutes and Papers considered at meetings of the Governing Board or Committee, care of the school office.


Please refer to the weekly school newsletters for occasional updates on what our governors are doing to support the school’s development.
