Meet the Governors

Gallery

The Governing Body at Elmtree Infant and Nursery School currently has members made up of volunteers from the Community, the Staff and Parents.

 

The Governing Body works with the Head and the Senior Leadership Team to ensure that all the children at Elmtree Infant and Nursery School receive the best possible start to their education.

 

There are different categories of Governors; Skills Governors and Parent Governors.  Below there is more about the roles and responsibilities of the Governors at Elmtree Infant and Nursery School.

 

If you think you might be interested in becoming a Governor please contact Ben Davies our Development and Equalities Governor  via the school office who will be able to give you more information.  As a new Governor you will undergo a period of training to help you understand your role on the Governing Body and there are regular development opportunities available from throughout the term of your Governance. 

 

Please feel free to contact any of the Governors by emailing or telephoning the school office.  Alternatively you can speak directly with one of our Governors at the regular Parent Voice Meetings.
