Governing Body

Our Board of Directors, who govern the school, is legally constituted to maintain a general overview of such matters as curriculum, premises, finance, staffing, and the general conduct of the school. They meet regularly to consider matters affecting the school and to receive a report from the Headteacher concerning the operation of the school. As an Academy, the Directors are the employers of all the staff and are directly responsible for the premises.

Mrs Heather Byron and Mr Peter Denning are the Co-Chairs.

The full Board consists of 14 directors. We do have some vacancies at the moment. If you are interested in joining, please make initial contact through the Clerk – Louise Layzell (LLayzell@educ.somerset.gov.uk).

You do not have to be a parent of a child at the school to join the Board as there are various categories of director. You will need time to fullfil the role and a commitment to provide the very best for our children.

One of our present vacancies is for a parent director.  This category of director is filled by an election process involving parents of children at the school.  Should you wish to nominate yourself for this vacancy further details may be found on the vacancies tab of this website.
