Our Governors

Governors are an essential part of our school community.

School governors play a vital part in the success of our school. They’re volunteers who work with the headteacher and the school community.

Governors serve for terms of four years. Being a governor can be hard work and it means giving up some free time to attend meetings. It’s a valuable way of serving the local community and gives people an opportunity to influence education in their area.

It’s important to get to know the school well by visiting it, supporting events and by undertaking the training provided by the Local Authority.

Governing bodies need to meet at least once a term. Governors join one or two committees which preside over detailed work.

If you would like to know more, please contact our Chair of Governors, Mr Pete Westlake via office@wyborne.greenwich.sch.uk. Governor Body meeting minutes are available at request.
