Year Governors:
 
There is a Governor for each Year Group in the school. This Governor follows the Year Group throughout the school so will get to know the children very well as they progress through the school. Each Year Governor visits the class each term to observe a lesson and join in with the learning. Year Governors then present a termly Year Governor report to the Full Governing Body on their visits.
