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.
