Each governor is a member of at least one of the committees (Teaching and Learning or Resources). The Full Governing Body and Teaching & Learning committee meet termly and the Resources committee meet three times an academic year. Governors also carry out various working groups throughout the year looking at areas like parental involvement, transition and training.

 

Governors take an active part in school life, attending events such as the Talent Show, Christmas Dinner, parents evenings and special assemblies.

 

If you wish to contact the Governors, please email the Chair of Governors at Sue.Murray@grangepark.kent.sch.uk. Dates for all meetings of the governing body are included on the Calendar and Special Dates page.
