Meet the Governors

Welcome to the Governors' section.

 

Our governors are a key part of Greenhill. Their role is to oversee many of the strategic decisions which affect Greenhill Primary School and to act as a ‘critical friend’ who support, challenge,ask questions and ultimately represent the school community.

 

The Governors work in close partnership with the headteacher, staff and the local authority and are involved with areas such as buildings, finance, curriculum and staffing. The day-to-day running of Greenhill is is the headteacher's responsibility - who is also a governor - whilst the governing body ensures the school works well and offers an appropriate range of academic and social opportunities.

 

To see more details of the committees, attendance and roles of our governors, view the tables at the end of this page.
