School Governors

Hello Parents, Guardians and Carers,

We want to introduce ourselves and tell you something about our role in the school. “Governor” sounds a big word. The Governors of Colman Infant School are volunteers who, like you, want to offer our support to all the children and staff to make a positive contribution to their lives and the wider school community.

The Head and Staff run the school on a day-to-day basis and as a Governing Body, we support them in many ways including policy making, decisions on finance, monitoring the curriculum and with the School Improvement and Development Plan.

There are Parents, Community and Local Authority governors as well as members of the teaching staff and you will have seen us around the school helping in different ways. We belong to the Full Governing Body as well as either the Finance, Premises and Personnel or the Curriculum Committee and each group meets twice a term.
