Our Governing Body

Our Governing body is responsible for the strategic direction of our school. We're a group of volunteers that meet approximately once a month to ensure that Glenfrome is delivering a good quality education and is effectively using the schools budget. Along with our Head Teacher and senior leadership team we agree the School Development Plan and review and monitor the progress of that plan throughout the school year with regular reviewed and visits to the school.

The Governing body is made up from a mix of parents, staff and community members all with different skills and experience enabling them to make a valued contribution to the school. We also have 6 specific Governor roles linked to priority areas for the school; Safeguarding & Child Protection, Equalities, Health & Safety, Children in Care, Pupil Premium and Special Educational Needs.
Recently, amongst other things we've agreed our School Development Plan for the current academic year, appointed staff, secured funding for our new building, approved our school budget, and reviewed various school policies.
Take a look below to see who's who on the Governing body - you'll probably recognise a few faces!

If you'd like to get involved with our Governing body please either contact the Chair of Governors, the Headteacher or the school office.
