The Governing Body

Corbridge Church Of England First School Governing Body

"Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go" Joshua 1-9


We aim to be an inspirational Church of England School which promotes respect, and values the worth, achievement and contribution of all.

The Governing Body meets for its statutory meetings once per term, but much of its work is done in smaller delegated sub-committees:

- Curriculum
- Staffing & Finance

All parents are encouraged to attend the annual meeting of parents and governors.  This is an opportunity to meet and exchange views.

Governors are appointed for a four-year period and play a vital role acting as link between school, church, parents and the Local Authority.  They work closely to ensure the interests of your child are met.
