Primary School


 Governance is a wonderfully rewarding and stimulating form of volunteering. What could be more satisfying than playing a part in ensuring the children of Netherthong School get the best possible education?

We strive to be equipped to deal with the endlessly changing face of education. At present we are privileged in having a school which is truly outstanding by any measure. Your governing board work with the school’s superb leadership and staff, to continuously improve every aspect of our children’s education, safety and happiness at Netherthong.  

As Chair of your Governing Board I am part of a team, deciding on things jointly and sharing responsibilities for the decisions we make about the overall direction of the school, and work closely with the head teacher to set policies, targets, development plans and more, and to make the best use of the school budget for the benefit of the children’s education.

In hugely challenging times Governance is not easy, but so worthwhile.
