Meet the Governors

Welcome Message

 

On behalf of the Governors, a very warm welcome to our school web site. We hope you will find it easy to use and that it gives you a taste of what we have to offer to you and your children.

The Governors meet twice a term to discuss school strategy and policies. Additionally, many governors enjoy coming into school on a regular basis and involve themselves in the day-to- day life of the school .This includes activities such as helping in classrooms and driving the school minibus. Our aim is to provide a safe and caring environment where children are encouraged and challenged to reach their full potential. We are proud of our school and feel privileged to support the Head Teacher and staff in delivering a varied and stimulating education for our children.

Governor applications are welcomed from all members of the community. Elections are held when vacancies arise. You can find a list of the current governors and more information on what we do on the Governors’ page of this web site. If you have any suggestions or queries, or would like to enquire about being a Governor at Otterbourne School please leave a message, with your contact details, with the school office.
