Meet our Governors

The Governing Board of the school is responsible for the overall long-term policy of the school, working in conjunction with the head teacher.  The head teacher is responsible for the internal organisation, management and control, as well as ensuring the strategic planning of the governing board is delivered.

The Governors are made up of members appointed by Edukos Trust, a staff representative, parents and other community members.  They meet at least once a term to discuss the past, present and future of Airmyn School.  They ensure that current legislation is addressed and appropriate action taken.

Certain Governors have specific responsibilities for areas of the school’s strategic leadership.  Governors are usually involved with the appointment of new staff.
