Every school is required to have a Governing Board: our governing board is made up of volunteers from the local community, parents, the Headteacher and a staff member. Together we have a collective responsibility for making sure that all children in our school receive the best education possible in a safe, caring and as a Church of England primary school, Christian environment. The Headteacher is responsible for the day-to-day management of the school. The Governing Board is strategic, which means that we plan for the future and consider how the school can achieve its targets and aspirations.
We hope that you will find the following information and links informative. If you require any further information or would like to contact us, all governors can be contacted through the school office or email the Chair of Governors, Kevin Moyes email@example.com. Your comments and suggestions are always welcomed, we would very much like to hear from you.
The Governing Body is appointed by Oxfordshire Local Authority

7. Long Term Vision Map 2016 3-7 year plan
This plan is for school use and is a living document (it will be reviewed and updated at key points in the year) but governors felt that in the spirit of transparency we would make it available on the school website. It is aspirational and sets out the areas we would like to change over time and those areas such as our ethos and family feel which we want to retain.
Details can be found on the School Future page.
