Meet the Governors

Welcome to our Governors page where you can see the names of the people that make up all the different areas of the Governing Body.

 

Governors are people who are passionate about the school and are here to make sure that every child is given the best education, opportunities and experiences that the school can give. The Governors work extremely closely with the school and regularly challenge and question to ensure that everyone is working together to ensure that every child has the opportunity to be enriched, enhanced and excited.
 
Who we are and what we do
 
The Governing Body is made up of a mix of Local Authority Governors, Staff Governors, Community Governors and Parents Governors.   
 
At Dorney School, all Governors put the needs of the children at the heart of the decisions they make. Governors are involved in any decisions made which affect the school, from curriculum decisions, setting the annual budget, appointing staff and safeguarding not to mention approving all the school policies. 
 
All the Governors work extremely hard and happily give up their time because they are passionate about Dorney School and are very proud of all the hard working children and staff.
 
Thank you for taking the time to find out a little bit about our Governing Body.
