Governing Body of Meadowbank School
Governors work closely with the Headteacher to manage the school budget and premises,
appoint staff and help the school to set strategic priorities.
The Governing Body plays an important role in monitoring the school’s progress and helping
to set targets to ensure the school provides an excellent learning environment for all the
children. Governors also play an important role in ensuring the school has robust policies
and practices in place for safeguarding children, and that the school is a safe place to work,
learn and play.

- Staff Governors: members of the school staff including the Headteacher
