A message from the Chair of Governors
Thank you for visiting our Governor’s page.
The School has successfully developed into a vibrant and inspiring place to learn. The Headteacher has been supported by a committed and enthusiastic teaching and support Staff, who are determined to provide the best all round education for our children.
Whilst academic achievement is important, as a school we are equally proud of the high quality of our pastoral care and success in developing the whole child. As a voluntary controlled Church of England School, we have strong links with our Parish Church. The school promotes Christian values while actively supporting diversity and community cohesion.
The Headteacher, teaching and support staff and parents will be supported by our enthusiastic, forward thinking Governing Body, as they take Weavers Close from today, into its exciting tomorrow.

What does a school Governor do?
Effective governing bodies work in close partnership with the headteacher in making decisions. The head,not the governing body, is responsible for the day-today leadership and management of the school.
The responsibilities of the governing body are defined in law. They are predominantly strategic and include:
The governing body’s formal work and decision-making is undertaken in meetings. Their workload is managed by delegating some tasks to committees or other small groups. Committees specialise in one of a number of areas, typically curriculum, finance, staff and premises matters.
The governing body is made up of:
