2015 has seen changes to the Governing body.
Cllr Diane Williams and Cllr Dave Murphy have resigned from the governors. We will miss their input and advice and I thank them for all their hard work on behalf of your children.
We are delighted to welcome two new governors: Mrs Joanne Horn and Mr Zeghum Noor.
If you need to contact the governors you can email
or leave a letter addressed to the chair at the school office, it will be forwarded on to him unopened. Alternatively maybe you can see one of the governors around school: Mrs Fairhurst (parent governor), and Mrs Taylor are around school every day.
