Governors' role and complaints

Governors often attend curriculum afternoons, parents' evenings and Friday coffee afternoons. They will wear their governor's badge to identify themselves and are always pleased to hear your suggestions, ideas and comments.

However, governors may only act with the remit of the full governing body and may not give advice or act as individuals.

If you have any concerns or complaints please use the school's complaints policy.

We will always do everything we can to resolve issues raised by parents.
