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 

  • Hold the head teacher to account for the educational performance of the school, its pupils and performance management of staff 

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

 

The Chair of Governors (Richard Dawson) can be contacted at chair@goodlydale.cumbria.sch.uk

 

The Clerk to the Governors (Melonie Gavin) can be contacted at clerk@goodlydale.cumbria.sch.uk or 015394 46946
