Meet the Governors

Welcome to the Governors' section!

Our school governors are actively involved in the life and work of the school.  They support the activities which are going on at Sutton as well as providing challenge to enable the school to move forward; recognising achievements and evaluating progress.


The governors meet termly for the Full Governing Body meeting and in addition to these meetings, there are sub-committee meetings held at least termly.
