The Local Governing Board (LGB) is made up of representatives from parents, staff and the local community and works with the school to achieve the best possible education for all the children.
The governors help the school towards raising standards, support the Headteacher and staff, monitor and evaluate the progress the school makes towards its priorities and targets and is accountable to the Multi-Academy Trust (MAT) for the overall performance of the school and the strategic decisions made.
The full LGB meets three times a year and there are three sub-committees which monitor particular areas in more detail, Ethos, Finance & Premises and Teaching & Learning.

The members of the Local Governing Board (at September 2016) are as follows:-
I am a parent of two boys at the school and have been a Governor since the school became an Academy in April 2013, becoming Chair in March 2015. I work in Information Technology in Bristol, so I have always had a focus on the way technology can be used effectively as well as being the Governor representative on the E-Safety Committee.
As Chair of Governors, I have been privileged to be part of the journey the school has been on and to lead a committed team who bring a wide range of skills to provide strategic direction and challenge to the school. I also have the opportunity to liaise with the central team at the Bath and Wells Multi-Academy Trust and other MAT Governors, so I can see how being part of family of schools with a similar ethos and values can provide benefits for all.
