Meet the Governors

About the Governors

The Governing Body at Ashley Junior School is made up of parent, staff and local community representatives. The full Governing Body meets once or twice a term, but there are also three committees, Resources Committee and Curriculum Standards and Pupil Welfare Committee, which also both meet at least termly.

All governors attend training in order to carry out their role and make regular visits to the school to offer support and advice.

The following documents will provide some information on the Governing Body of Ashley Junior School. This information is always being added to and updated, but if you can’t find what you are looking for you can contact the Clerk to the Governors via the main school email address –
