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.

Mr N Copitch is our Chair of Governors, the other governors are: Mr S Eccleston; Cannon D Melville; Mrs S Shackleton; Mrs S Thomas; Mrs T Roe; Mrs S Tromans; Mrs M Sefton, Mr C Allison, Mr C Williams, Mrs R Powell, Mr Z Chaudry and Mrs T Pridden.  Get to know your Governors by clicking on their names to access their personal profile.  All Governors have voting rights on the full Governing Body and on the Sub-Committee of which they are a member, please visit the Committees page for more information.  

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.
