Welcome to our Governors' Page


The Governing Body at Marshlands Primary School acts as a critical friend to the school. It takes part in formulating school policies and managing and setting the financial budget which it continuously reviews throughout the school year. It reviews the school development plan and members come into school to look at the teaching and learning that takes place in the classrooms. Our governing body is made up of parents, staff, local authority representatives and members of the community. Each year group has an appointed governor so that they can get to know the children, check on progress and see how the Pupil Premium is being spent to raise progress.


Please use this page to see who our governors are, find out about their responsibilities, contact the governors and read the termly governors' newsletters.
