What do the governors do and who are they?

School governors play a vital part in the success of this school. They are volunteers who work with the headteacher, the Diocese of Leeds and the Local Authority to improve standards in the school. Governors try to make sure that all parts of the school community are working together well, to ensure excellence for our children.

Our governing body is made up of a number of different governors:

  • Parent governors - those with a child at the school and who are elected by the other parents, Rachel Straughan and Andy Sansom are parent governors on our Governing Body
  • Staff governors - those who work at the school as teachers or support staff. Helen Campbell is a staff governor on our Governing Body                                      
  • Local Education Authority (LA) governor - those appointed by the LA from political parties and the community, Chris Watson is a Local Authority Governor on our Governing Body.
  • Foundation governors - are governors  appointed by the church. Sue Taylor, Jean Selbie Paula Gray, Gemma Berry and Colette Kitson are foundation governors on our Governing Body
  • Our Headteacher, Paul West and Deputy Head, Andrew Hancox attend all Governing Body Meetings.
