Governors

The Governing Body of the school is comprised of those who voluntarily give up their time, skills and expertise to assist the head teacher and staff in running Christ Church. This includes:

  • Foundation Governors (representing the Diocese)
  • Staff Governors • Parent Governors (elected by parents)
  • Co-opted Governors (skills-based appointment by the Governing Body)

In addition, Associate Members may be appointed for up to 1 year to assist with specific tasks but do not have voting rights. More details about the school governors can be downloaded below.

The Board of Governors will be very pleased to hear any suggestions or comments from parents. There is a box for this purpose in the school foyer. Alternatively, email the Chair of Governors via the school office at:
