Governors

A big welcome from the governors here at Meadow Park Academy. The Governing Body has nine members varying from teachers, support staff, parents and members of the local community. We work as a team with the Principal for the benefit of all the pupils and staff at Meadow Park.

We’re all volunteers and have a diverse background, from education, finance, management and IT. We’re here to give the school a strategic direction and to act as ‘a critical friend’ - helping to guide the school to improving the standard of education for all our children. We don’t get involved in the day-to-day operation of the school, but set the criteria by which the school is managed.

We ensure that local and national government legislation and targets are met, that we spend our school budget wisely, that the safety of everyone is paramount, and that the curriculum is delivered to benefit all children.

Governors take an active role in the school, not only attending meetings, but also school function and undertaking visits to classrooms.

If you want to contact us, then we’d be happy to hear from you; please contact Barbara Bryant, Clerk to Governing Body, at school or via e-mail barbarabryant@meadowparkacademy.org
