Greenhill Primary School

Our Governors

Welcome to our Governors' pages

Our governors are a key part of Greenhill. They are strategic leaders working in partnership with the headteacher and leadership team. Our governors provide oversight of the school's finances and hold our executive leaders to account. This information constitutes our Governance Statement, which is reviewed annually, in the Summer Term.

Governors' Vision for the school:

We are kind, we are confident, we are resilient, we are Greenhill!
