Spotlight on Governors

September 14, 2018

Last night, all available school governors met for the first full governing body meeting (FGB) of the year. A full governing body meeting takes place 4 times a year at The Lea and is a key meeting in helping to quality assure all aspects of the school, setting the school’s aims and approving its policies. Whilst a position as a school governor is voluntary, a school cannot run without a governing body and at The Lea, we are always grateful for the selfless efforts from our team of governors.

At last night’s meeting, Mark Collins – who has been Chair of Governors for the past 3 years – ended his term and stepped down. Beth Featherby, who is a parent governor, was voted in as his replacement on an interim basis until the next FGB meeting on the 29th November. On behalf of all parents and staff, we would like to thank Mark for his efforts as Chair.

If you want to know more about the governors or are interested in becoming involved, please come and speak to Mr Berry.
