Governors

Role of the Governors

Being a school governor is a very rewarding job. It gives you the opportunity to have a say in the development of the school. As a governor you will also be involved and aware of the latest developments in the way that children are being educated.

There is a team of Governors at Moorfield, including representing from teacher governors, parent governors and local education authority (LEA) governors. The term of office is 4 years, and an election process is adopted to ensure all candidates are given a fair chance.
