Welcome from the Chair of Governors

The Governing Body is a team of committed and enthusiastic volunteers, representing all corners of our school community including parents, staff and local churches. We work closely with the Headteacher and senior staff in the school to set strategic direction and ensure strong accountability is in place for everything that happens at St Andrew's CofE School.

In short, we are often described as ‘critical friends’ of the school; challenging and giving constructive criticism, but always from the perspective of strong support and absolute commitment to the goals of the school.
