Information for Appointed Governors

We are delighted to welcome you to the Governing Body. We are a dedicated group of people, from a variety of different backgrounds, who have joined together to help steer Bishop’s Waltham Junior School through the choppy and ever changing waters of the Education System. We are very proud of the school and its achievements and hope you will soon be able to help us with our task of improving outcomes for all the children in the school.

The Governing Body have compiled and agreed this document list as we understand that being a governor for the first time can be very daunting.

Please feel free to email or chat to anyone of us at any time if you feel unsure about anything to do with being a governor. We want you to settle in as quickly as possible and start contributing your expertise to our group.

Look forward to working with you,



Louise Neale                                    Clare Hedgecock                     Darren Campbell

Chair of Governors                          Vice Chair                                Headteacher
