Believing and achieving together

 Our Governing Body

The Governors determine the aims and philosophies of the school and work in a partnership with staff and parents/guardians. The day to day management remains the responsibility of the Head Teacher and parents/guardians are encouraged to share any questions they might have with members of the teaching staff.  The Governors have confidence that most questions can be answered by the Head Teacher but in situations where broader policy is an issue, reference may be made to the Governors either through the Chair of the Governing Body or through the clerk to the governors who may be contacted via the school office.

The Governors' role is to give direction, to determine broad policy and to be supportive of all those who work on their behalf to provide the caring, challenging and exciting learning environment that is Victoria Primary School. 

The Local Governing Body is chaired by Barbara Potter.
