Governing Body

Governors work together to provide an independent oversight of the management and operation of the school, with the aim of improving the quality of education provided and raising standards. Governors are volunteers who work in close partnership with the headteacher to conduct the school to the highest standards of educational achievement for all pupils.

Mrs L Swift is our Chair of Governors, the other governors are: Rev’d D Melville; Mr S Eccleston; Mrs B Harrison; Mrs J Simpson; Ms C Overall; Mrs L Swift; Mr D Mika; Mrs S Shackleton; Dr C Ralston; Mrs S Thomas; Mrs L Bevan; Mrs T Roe; Mrs N Copitch.

We also have Kate Neal-Smith who is our experienced clerk to the governors, and who provides an invaluable service.  The governors work hard throughout the year to support the excellent teaching and learning within our school. I hope you find this website helpful and friendly, a true reflection of the atmosphere within St Kenelm’s.
