Meet the Governors

The school has a very effective and supportive Governing Body made up from parents, teachers and representatives from the community and local authority.  The Governors are the immediate lay support for the professional staff of the school. 

The Diocese of Birmingham and the PCC appoint the Foundation Governors who represent the Founding Trust of the school.  They have a special role to play in serving both school and Church.

Each member of the Governing Body serves for four years and shares with the Headteacher the responsibility for the running of the school.  They and their committees meet regularly each term to make decisions which affect the general policy of the school, the appointment of staff and the management of finances.  All governors may be contacted via the school office.
