To write to any of the Governors, please send letters to the school, addressed to the named Governor, or the Governing Body.
What is a school governor?
There are various types of governors drawn from different areas of the community including parents, staff, the local authority and other groups.
Governors are volunteers who spend about six hours each month attending meetings and working to further the school's development. Parent governors and school staff governors are elected, other governors are appointed by the local authority or selected by the governing body to represent the wider community.
School governors make a positive contribution to your children's education. Together with the head teacher, they set the direction of the school and decide how the school's budget should be spent. Governing bodies make decisions on matters such as school policies and the school's Development Plan.
Archway School and your child
The Governors work with the headteacher and staff to ensure your child has a happy and successful time at Archway.
Through regular surveys at parents' evenings we know that the vast majority of students, their parents and carers are happy with Archway School. However, we are aware that situations may arise where you want to ask further questions or bring matters to the attention of the school.
To help you do this, the school has procedures to help resolve any issues that you, as a parent or carer, may have.
Please click here to go to the Parents' section of the Archway School website for more information. If, having gone through the agreed procedures you feel you need to contact the Governing Body, please send a letter to the school, or leave a letter at the school reception, addressed to the Chair of the Governors (or another named Governor from the list above) or email: email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Up to date school policies covering a wide range of issues of interest to parents and carers are available on the Parents' section of this website
