Welcome to the Governors’ page of the website. School governors have general responsibility to parents and the Department for Education for the effective leadership of the school, acting within the framework set by national legislation and policies.


Governors help to decide school policy and share responsibility for the leadership of the school. They advise and support the Executive Principal and staff, working with the school to meet the needs of the children whilst ensuring that the school provides good value for money. They help the Executive Principal with the selection of staff and act as a link between the school and the community.

If you are interested in being a governor, please contact the school office to find out if there are any vacancies.

If you would like to contact a governor, please speak to the school office. Letters marked for the attention of a governor will be passed on in confidence. Alternatively please email admin@thegroveacademy.org.uk and your email will be forwarded to the Chair of Governors.
