Laleham Church of England Primary School

Governors

The governing body set the vision, ethos and strategic direction of the school as well as challenging the capital, educational and financial plans. All governors have an area of responsibility which they oversee. Governors visit the school on a regular basis and report back to the governing body on their linked areas.

The Full Governing Body meets 5 times a year.  There are 6 committees that meet each term and feed back to the Full Governing Body:

Strategic Committee, Achievement and Learning, Ethos and Community, Resources, Pay and Admissions.

Our chair of governor is Carol Manger. If you need to get in contact with Carol, her email address is: cmanger@laleham.surrey.sch.uk.
