Governor Information

A warm welcome from the Governing Body of Goodly Dale Community Primary School.

 

Our governing body has twelve volunteer governors who bring with them a wide range of professional skills, knowledge and experience to support the school in achieving its vision.

 

Our three core strategic functions are to: 

  • Ensure clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction

  • Oversee the financial performance of the school and ensure money is well spent
