Full Governing Body

Our Governing Body is made up of seventeen people – sixteen of which are volunteers made up from parents, the community, staff and a Local Authority appointee. Individually we have no authority but collectively we govern the workings of the school through corporate decision making.

To ensure that Noadswood continues to do all it can for its pupils, its staff and the wider community it is vital that interested and committed people are willing to put themselves forward and participate as governors.

Although governance is achieved through group decision making, each of the stakeholder bodies are represented on the Governing Body. For example six of the governors are parents of children at Noadswood and are selected through parent elections whereas one represents the Local Authority and he is nominated by local councillors. We are a relatively new team made up of enthusiastic and committed people whose ultimate aim is to support and challenge the school to becoming an institution where every child has the opportunity to reach their full potential in a safe and secure and happy environment.
