Meet The Governors

Primary School Governors are responsible for supervising the management of a primary school. This includes budgeting, staffing, and setting school aims and policies. Governors work together with the leadership team of Brookside (including the headteacher and deputy headteachers) to enable the school to run effectively and provide high quality education to the children. The governing body exists to support and challenge the school's leadership team in all that they do.

Please find below a list of governors and their stated interests. 

Chair of Governors Paul Saville Copse Close, Oadby, Leicester LE2 4FU

The Trustees of OAK Multi Academy Trust believe it is important that boards reflect the diversity of the school communities they serve. Diverse boards promote inclusive school environments and provide diverse role models for staff and young people.

The governors are currently collecting data on the diversity of the board, including data on age, gender and ethnicity. They will use that data to inform their recruitment and training needs and ensure there is always a diverse range of perspectives around the table to support robust decision-making.

Due to our relatively small governing bodies, we do not publish this diversity data online as individual governors could be identified and we have a legal obligation to protect their personal data.
