​Parent Governors, have a child in School, are elected by the parents of the School, serve, as do other Governors, for four years. Governors work together, they cannot work individually. The Governors oversee the Curriculum, following the DfE guidelines. They are also responsible for the appointment of all staff. They set standards of behaviour. Governors are responsible for setting the School budget and over-seeing how the budget is spent. The School has contracts with registered building consultants and a sub-committee to oversee any building or repair work done at School. The School currently runs its own catering services, Preschool and Out-of-school club employing our own staff, the Governors oversee the quality of these services via a committee.​

There are termly meetings at which parents may share their concerns or ask questions about any aspect of school life.​​
