As Vice Chair of Governors, I am very proud of our school and the strong body of Governors that I lead. The governors are volunteers from all walks of life who want to make a positive contribution to pupil's education by supporting the school. We work together as a body to ensure clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction and that the school delivers a good quality education in a safe and enriching environment by quality assuring the educational performance of the school. We ensure and oversee the financial procedures of the school, making sure money is well spent.
Manningtree Governors bring many skills and experiences to their role in supporting, promoting and protecting the interests of the school, its students and its staff and are an important link between the school and its local community. We are involved in all aspects of school life and regularly visit the school, and help shape the future.
