Governors

Welcome to the Governors’ section

We are an enthusiastic and committed group of people who volunteer to help run the school. We come from all walks of life - we are local business people, staff and parents.

We are involved in key decisions about all aspects of managing the school – such as overseeing the buildings and budgets, and reviewing policies.

Working closely with the Headteacher we play an important role in improving and maintaining the high standards throughout the school and making big decisions about the school’s ethos and long term goals.

As well as attending a termly board meeting all governors also sit on a committee, please see the grid below for details of the committees.

If you would like to get in touch please email our Clerk to Governors: clerk@goodilf.org.uk or our Chair of Governors: chair@goodilf.org.uk 

Our vision and purpose for the Federation is to:

Allow every child to be the best that they can be.

Equip every child for lifelong learning by becoming:

  • Resilient
  • Confident
  • Adaptable
  • Collaborative

Deliver an enriched curriculum which values a sense of community, tradition and respect.
