Our Governors - 2016-2017

'Governors know the school well.  They play an active and effective role within the school and keep themselves well informed about the school's many strengths and the areas that require further improvements'

Ofsted, June 2014

School Governors are drawn from various sources including parents, staff and local government. They perform three key roles towards raising school standards:

  • set strategic direction 
  • ensure accountability 
  • monitor and evaluate the school's performance. 

All Governors, including the Headteacher, have declared that they have no business or pecuniary interests and no material interests arising from relationships between Governors, or relationships between Governors and school staff (except where stated otherwise under each Governor entry below). Attendance figures at meetings are given for the last full academic year, where applicable.

 

Fynamore's Full Governing Body (FGB) consists of:
