Governors

The Governing Body

 

Our Governors play a vital role in our school life.  Not only do they, regularly, meet as part of their role in the Leadership and Management of the school, but they are also involved in many different aspects in the lives of the children whilst they are at school.

 

The Governing Body has twelve members, proposed or elected by various interests.  There are two Parent Governors voted for by parents/carers.  The Chair and Vice-Chair are elected, annually, at the first meeting of the year (in September).  The minutes of Governing Body meetings, with the exception of matters deemed confidential, are available for inspection in the school office. Please contact the clerk if you wish to see them. At the AGM, Declaration of Business Interests forms are completed. At each governor meeting, declarations of interest are declared.

 

Mrs Johnson is the Chair of the Governing Body. You are able to contact Mrs Johnson, via email, at:

admin@stmatthews.cumbria.sch.uk

Please mark your email to the attention of Mrs Johnson.
