Our Governors

At Leechpool, the Governing Body is highly valued, teamwork being a priority. We work with the school, with the aim of improving standards and striving for excellence.

Good governance is not just about sitting in meetings. We endeavour to stay updated on, and apply, new legislation. Our governors are hands on and assist with school events such as fayres, fundraising events, new parents induction evenings, outings and special events. Governors also attend classes to monitor the impact of the teaching on our learners, assemblies, inset and training days, inspections and LA reviews, to name but a few areas of involvement.

Current parents are welcome to contact governors with questions or general feedback. Please note that parents should always contact the school directly with any concerns. Likewise, we encourage any prospective parents who are thinking of sending their children to Leechpool to browse through our website and, importantly, to visit our school so you can see first-hand what Leechpool has to offer.

Regular Governor Updates

Below is an update of the recent work we have been developing as a Governing Body.   This section of our page will be regularly updated to let all families of the school know what issues we are addressing to improve the provision of education for the children of Leechpool.
