Meet the Governors

The Governors of our school have a monitoring and supporting role. They visit school and meet regularly with staff to understand the achievement of pupils, the quality of teaching, the behaviour and safety of pupils and the quality of leadership and management.

All governors meet together formally twice every term as the Full Governing Board but also delegate particular responsibilities to smaller teams of governors to monitor specific activities. Examples include finance & resources, pupil progress, safeguarding, SEND, performance management, pupil premium, health & safety, premises and the curriculum. Governors also work in teams to support and monitor key school priorities in the School Development Plan ensuring that the school has a focused strategic direction.

Our governors include parents, staff and representatives from the local community. They share the school’s passion and commitment to ensuring that the children of Telford Infant School love learning, are safe and happy and that they achieve the very best that they can.

Governors are always keen to hear from parents. If you would like to talk to a governor then leave a message with the school office and someone will contact you.

Governor Board Meeting Minutes are available from the school office on request.
