Meet the Governors

As of Monday 9th October 2023, we joined Cardwell and Eglinton Primary Schools to form the Ambition Federation.

On 25th April 2023 the Department for Education updated what maintained schools must publish online and have asked for us to publish the governing board diversity data' so it is widely accessible to members of the school community and the public. At this moment in time this is with the governing board to collect and confirm with all governors as board members can opt out of sharing this information. Governance Strategic Plan 2023-24
