Governors

Welcome to our Governors’ section. 

Please find below details of how our Governing body is structured, including the names, categories, responsibilities and terms of appointment for each Governor.

 

Our Governors play an important part in the life of school at The Wilfred Owen School.

 

They take their role very seriously and have undergone a great deal of training and development to ensure they are effective in the role.  Governor updates are included on our weekly newsletter so parents know what role they are playing in school.

 

Governor attend meetings, complete link visits which support the school development plan, attend update sessions and come along to many of our activities and events.
