Church Of England Primary School

Governor Training & Development

Our Governors regularly participate in training and development sessions to improve knowledge, skills and understanding so that they can provide the best possible leadership and support to the school. Sometimes these courses are run in conjunction with other local schools so that we can also learn from others and share best practice locally. Jane Ogle is the lead Governor for Training and Development.
