Governors

Introducing the Governing Body

The Governors here at Vernham Dean Gillum’s Church of England Primary School work in partnership with the Headteacher to manage the strategic side of school development as well as ensuring that the school meets its statutory responsibilities.  Crucial to their role is to ensure the school is run effectively and promotes high standards of education and achievement for its pupils.  They do this by acting as a ‘critical friend’ and through their collaborative work as a Full Governing Body.
