At Senacre Wood Primary School, the Governing Body, as well as the Headteacher and staff, actively support the ethos of the school and endeavour at all times to ensure that this is an integral part of all aspects of school life.

The members of the current Governing Body come from a wide background of experience and have a huge range of talents and skills, all of which they have committed to the support and well-being of the school. Governors are appointed in several ways and represent many different areas of the community. Their role is to support and advise on the work carried out within the school. Through meetings, both formally and informally, the Governors keep up-to-date with the daily running of the school, as well as helping prepare and implement, school policies. 

Governors attend three Full Governing Body Meetings per school year, as well as sitting on our two sub-committees: The Curriculum Committee and the Finance Committee.

They are looked upon as 'Critical Friends'.

To be a Governor of Senacre Wood Primary School is both an honour and a privilege and the current team welcome you to the website, which we believe to be an informative and positive introduction to our school.
