Governors

At Kingston Park, we have Governors who work closely with the Headteacher. Their role is to make key decisions that affect the education and wellbeing of our pupils. They are vital to the successful running of the school.

 

Parent representatives form part of the board. They are an important link between parents and the school. You can elect parent representatives and express your views and suggestions about the school to them.

 

If you would like to help our school and share your expertise by becoming a Governor please contact the Headteacher who can tell you more about what is involved.

 

Each of our Governors are assigned to a class and curriculum area. Our Governors are invited to all of our exciting events throughout the school year.

 

Our Chair of Governors is Mr Andrew Wynne.
