School Governors

Each School has a Governing Body made up of staff, parents, the local authority and members of the community. The role of the Governing Body is to provide support and expertise to the school in helping it to develop and to meet its targets. The Governing Body helps to monitor the standards in school by acting as a critical friend and ensuring the statutory duties of a school are undertaken.

We are very fortunate at Idle C.E. (A) PrimarySchool to have an active and committed Governing Body, which bring additional skills and expertise; continually provides support and contributes to the fantastic progress in school.
