West Heslerton School Governing Body
The school governors are an elected group of individuals from the community. Their role is to work together to guide and develop the school alongside the headteacher and staff. They plan the developments the school will make and monitor what happens in school.
Governors are elected by the church, the local authority, the staff and other parents for a term of 4 years. Parent Governor vacancies are advertised to all parents and carers of pupils at the school via newsletters when vacancies arise. Please contact school for the date of the next planned election of parent governors.
Instrument of Government
We will update this information as soon as we are able to but are currently focussing our team efforts upon pupil catch up after the worldwide pandemic.
How do I contact Governors?
Governors are always considering the best way forward for all pupils and parents. They would love to hear of ideas.
Please write to them via the Chairs of Governors at West Heslerton CE Primary School, High Street, West Heslerton, Malton. YO17 8RD or email to firstname.lastname@example.org marked for the attention of the Chairs of Governors.
