Governors play a key role in working with the Headteacher and staff to raise standards in all areas of school life. Governors bring a range of experiences and skills and we are fortunate to have an active Governing Body, committed to its role.

Our Governors work as two committees – the Finance and Personnel Committee and the Buildings and Curriculum committee.

Committee meetings and the Full Governing Body are held every half term. Additionally, there are visits to the school by individual governors.

The current members of the Governing Body are:

Mrs Carol Newman - Chairman

Also serves on the Governing Body of Devon Moors Federation

Mr Ian Luke - Vice Chair and Chair of Buildings and Curriculum Committee


Ms Carolyn George - Clerk to Governors

Also Clerk to Governors at Eggbuckland Community College

Mrs Heather Poustie - Headteacher
Mrs Judith Beacom - Chair of Finance and Personnel Committee Mr Adam Woolnough  - Vice Chair of Buildings and Curriculum Committee
Mrs Emma Neath - Vice Chair of Finance and Personnel Committee Mrs Chloe Howard-Smith
