The Governing Board

The new Federated Governing Board (April 2018) of St Andrew’s Infant and Junior Schools has a strong focus on three core strategic functions:

The Governors meet and operate as a full Governing Board each half term. Governors also visit the school during the day to meet with the children and staff and help with other activities throughout the day. If you would like further information about their work, you can visit the school and ask to read the approved minutes of the Governing Board in school.

Our Chair of Governors can be contacted via the school office 01484 714964 (Infant) or 01484 712895 (Junior)
