About the Governors

Welcome to the Governor section of the website. Here you can find out who your school governors are and what they do. You can also find copies of minutes from meetings by clicking here and read a report on this year’s work of the Governing Body by clicking  here.

The Leadership team and governors work together to cultivate first class partnerships with parents and carers, as well as the local community, all of whom play such an important part in the life of our thriving school.

We also work together with the Governing Bodies of other Deans schools and have formalised this in a Collaboration Agreement.  The Terms of Reference can be accessed by clicking here.

If you would like to contact the governing body then please email the Clerk at [email protected].
