Our Governors

We are pleased to have an active, supportive and challenging Governing Body representing a range of experience and expertise. The full Governing Body meets once per term. Additionally there are two committees, which meet once per term in the weeks preceding the Full Governors’ meeting. Our governors play an important role in our school. They are involved in a regular and rigorous programme of evaluation and monitoring to ensure that they have a thorough understanding of our school’s work. They also link with classes and teachers to gain a child’s eye view of Greenfield. They maintain a presence in our school through their excellent attendance at meetings and events in our school community throughout the year.  None of our governors has declared an interest on the register of business interests.  The registers are available, should you wish to view them.
