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 is the Chair, and Mrs Pam Macfarlane the Vice-Chair.

The full Board consists of 14 directors.

We have vacancies for two Parent Directors.  Please click on the items below for further information, or contact the school office if you would prefer to have hard copies.

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.  If you are interested in discussing the possibility of joining as a different category governor when a vacancy arises, please make initial contact through the Clerk – Louise Layzell (LLayzell@educ.somerset.gov.uk).
