Our Governors play a vital role in ensuring the best possible early education for all children that attend the school.

The Governors ensure that the school continues to provide the highest quality early education and care in partnership with our children and families.

As a school we all believe our children are citizens of our community and that by working in partnership we are able to make a real and lasting difference.

The Governors strive to ensure that school continues to be at the heart of our community and that we work hard to learn together and from each other.

Our governors are a committed group of individuals from a range of backgrounds and experiences which is what makes our school so successful.
