Welcome to our Governors' section.
Morley School's Governing Board is made up of 7 people. You can contact our Chair of Governors, Samantha Jackson, on email address email@example.com.
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.
Governors are also linked to our school key improvement areas

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.
