SPIRES FEDERATION GOVERNING BODY
 

The Governors of  The Spires Federation are a group of volunteers who carry overall responsibility for the school. We comprise representatives from the local community, parents, and those who work at the schools. It is our job to act as “critical friends”, monitoring the life of the school, the delivery of the curriculum, and the finances which pay for it all. The full governing body meets six times a year,  where matters surrounding finance and personnel, curriculum and the buildings and site are all discussed. All the Governors feel a real sense of privilege at being part of The Spires Federation and enjoy working to make sure that the education provided for the children is the best it can be. Please take a read below and find out who are Governors are:

I am a mum, a wife, a dog owner and an avid reader. I seek new experiences and skills. I became a governor to have a voice and to support our local school. To relax I read, sew and practice yoga.
