Governing Board

Welcome to our Morley Governors page.

Morley School's Governing Board is made up of 7 people.  You can contact our Chair of Governors, Jim Campbell, on email address


The Governing Board meets each half term to plan and promote the strategic development of our school. Governors actively seek their own CPD in order to keep themselves up to date with guidance and developments so that they can ensure the best support and challenge for our school.


The Governing Board reviews policies and documentation; ensures the financial compliance and security of the school; holds the Headmaster and staff to account; supports and challenges the strategic management of the school; ensures compliance with government legislation.



Our school motto:


'The Morley Feeling, where anything can be achieved'


Our School Vision:


Morley pupils want their school to be the best school ever. With adults and children working together, caring for each other, having fun and taking pride in all we do, we aim to bring out everyone’s skills and be the best that we can be.


Our School Aims:


To have the highest standards of good manners, honesty and achievement

To set a good example by behaving well all the time and working hard

To think about others and appreciate everyone as an individual

To be responsible for ourselves, our work, our school and each other

To be good team players and show sportsmanship

To be an individual: to be creative, imaginative, enquiring and to think

To share ideas and have confidence in ourselves

To have a sense of humour, to be adventurous and to have fun!

To be outstanding – to stand out from the crowd!

To be proud of our work: to believe and achieve

All governors can be contacted through the school office.  All governors (except the Headmaster) serve for a period of 4 years. The Headmaster role can only be undertaken by the serving Headmaster, and therefore the term of office is for as long as the post holder remains in post.  All governors positions are ratified by the whole governing body.
