What do we do?
Governors work with the Head Teachers and Senior Leadership Team to promote continuous improvement in the education provided for all the children attending our schools. We work together to make decisions on the overall direction of the school and set policies, targets, development plans and more. We also decide how to make the best use of the school budget for the benefit of the children’s education. As governors we work as a team, deciding on things jointly and sharing responsibilities for the decisions we make.
How can you contact us?
If you would like to know more about the governing body or may be interested in becoming a governor please don’t hesitate to get in touch through the school office.
We hope your children are enjoying their time at Springbank Primary Academy. However, if you have any questions or comments about how the school is run please talk to Mrs White and Mrs Clarke, or contact the governing body through the school office and one of us will get back to you as soon as possible.
