Welcome to our Governors’ section. 


What is a governing body?


At Brookfield Primary School we have a governing body made up of a team of volunteers both from within and outside the school community. The governing body focuses on the long-term development and improvement of the school, by ensuring that a high standard of teaching and learning, achievement and behaviour are maintained and developed. Meeting are held with the governing body timely, throughout the academic year to discuss safeguarding, school finances, the curriculum, the school grounds and staffing. The common purpose of these meetings is to ensure that the children at Brookfield Primary School receive the best possible education. 

Please find below details of how our Governing body is structured, including the names, categories, responsibilities and terms of appointment for each Governor.


Contacting the Governors:


If you wish to contact the Chair of Governors, Andy Brickles, please write a letter and place it in an envelope marked 'Chair of Governors' - Private and Confidential'


The school will ensure that the envelope is passed on promptly.

Declarations of Business Interests


At the start of every academic year, each Governor is asked to declare any business interests they may have, including any relationships with members of school staff.


At the start of each Full Governing Body or Committee Meeting throughout the academic year, Governors are asked if there are any changes to their initial declarations.
