Annie Lennard Primary School

Governing Body

The team of Governors at Annie Lennard Primary School helps to ensure the quality of education provision and act as the accountable body for the school.  We do this by setting the strategic vision and the ethos of school, monitoring and challenging the school’s performance and recruiting and holding to account the Head Teacher.

The children at our school have a happy, safe and caring environment in which to learn.  Our aim is to help our children grow so they are confident, sensitive to others, interested in the world around them and prepared for the challenges ahead.

The Governing Body has 12 people, some of whom are elected and others are co-opted because of the skills and experience they can bring to benefit Annie Lennard's.  It includes members of staff, parents and others from our community.

All Governors have the aim of seeing the children at our school receive the very best education possible.  Most of all we are here because we care for our school and want it to succeed.

Full information on our governors is set out below:
