The Local School Board

Our Local School Board acts in an advisory capacity. It meets three times yearly to consider and scrutinise how we deliver for our pupils, parents and wider community. Members of the school board also support the school in recruitment and other local activities that help ensure the school reflects the community’s needs and retains its unique identity.
