The school is a community school and it reconstituted in line with statutory guidelines on 5th January 2015.
The full governing body meets five or six times a year. In addition, sub-committees meet regularly to focus on specific issues. There are four sub-committees:
- a Resources Committee which deals with finance, premises and personnel matters
- a Learning Committee which deals with matters related to teaching, learning and behaviour
- a Performance Management Committee which monitors the appraisal of staff and undertakes the appraisal of the head-teacher.
- a Salary Review Committee that deals with issues around pay.

The governing body is made up of up to 15 governors.
- 2 elected parent governors
- 1 LA governor
- 1 headteacher
- 1 elected staff governor
- 10 co-opted governors (of which up to 3 could be members of staff).
The term of office of all governors (other than the headteacher) is four years.
We currently have vacancies for one parent governor, three co-opted governors and one local authority governor.
