Meet the Governors

Danegrove Governors

Our Governing Body is made up of:

  • Parents elected by other parents at the school

  • Teachers elected by their colleagues

  • A staff governor elected by school support staff

  • With the professionals in the school, plans the school's future direction

  • Appoints the headteacher

  • Makes decisions on the school's budget and staffing

  • Makes sure the national curriculum is taught

  • Helps decide how the school can encourage pupils' spiritual, moral and cultural development
