Who are the Governors?

The Governing Body of the school is made up of people from a variety of backgrounds, who are elected or  nominated and are representative of parents, teachers, and the local community.

All governors are committed to the school and its aspirations for every pupil to achieve their full potential; to succeed, soar and excel.

Please see the link below for a governor list, their responsibilities and attendance. We have also included some details about our governors at the end of this page.

What do governors do?

The governing body is responsible for the strategic management of the school. The governing body decides what they want the school to achieve, they do this by agreeing a framework with targets, and agreeing policies, in consultation with the head teacher. The governing body then monitors and evaluates the implementation and effectiveness of the framework and policies.

One of the most important aspects of the work of the governing body is to support the staff, parents and pupils, this is done by regular visits to the school.

The Governing Body is here to support you and your child through your child’s school career, if you have any questions about the work of the governing body or are interested in becoming a governor please contact us through the school office or speak to a parent governor.

In addition to our Local Governing Board, Peterborough Keys Academies Trust (PKAT) are governed by both members and trustees.

I have been a School Governor for the last 10 years and feel very proud to be a part of this school. I do not come from an educational background having trained and qualified as a Cordon Bleu Chef and worked in London before working in a solicitors office and then having my own business.
