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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
