Meet the Governors

Welcome to our Governors’ section. 

The Governing Body of Aldbury School consists of representatives from parents, staff, the Local Education Authority, the Church and members co-opted from the local community. A full Governors meeting is held six times a year.  In addition, the governors each sit on either the resources or a pupil and standards subcommittee.

The Governing Body ensures the effective management of the school and promotes the well-being of all in it by working in partnership with the head teacher.  It strives to ensure that all children at Aldbury School obtain the best possible skills for future learning by offering a caring environment and positive learning experiences.
