Headteacher: Mr P Cowley

Governing Body



Governors plan the school’s future direction making decisions on the school’s budget and staffing. They make sure the National Curriculum is taught and that the school provides for all its pupils, including those with special educational needs. Governors also make decisions on how the school can encourage pupils’ spiritual, moral and cultural development. If you are interested in becoming a parent governor, please contact the Head Teacher via the school office. You may also find it useful to visit the Middlesbrough Council Governor Development Service website which has information on becoming a school governor.


Our chair of governors is Helen Pickard.  She can be contacted by addressing letters to her at the school address and they will be handed to her.  Alternatively you can contact the office to arrange for her to call you if you need to speak to her about any issues.
