Governors

Welcome to our Governors’ pages

A message from our Chair of Governors, Mr David Owen.

On behalf of our Chair of Governors, welcome to Heron Primary School. On these pages you can find out more about who the Governors are, how they help the school and the role of our Governors at Heron.

There are currently 15 Governors of the school. Our structure is 5 Parent Governors, 5 Co-Opted Governors, 2 Partnership Governors, 1 LA Governor, 1 Staff Governor, 1 Headteacher (ex-officio) Governor. All of our Governors bring a wide range of knowledge and expertise to our school from a variety of backgrounds.

Our role is to ensure that the school meets its commitment to ensure that every child receives the best education possible in a secure, caring, friendly and stimulating learning environment. We support the school but also monitor performance and challenge the schools’ leadership team to ensure that standards are kept high. We do this by visiting the school regularly to test strategies, policies and to gather feedback from pupils and the staff team. We also ensure that we attend the cycle of Governor meetings in each school year.

Here is a summary of our current Governors:
