Meet The Governors

Oakfield has an active and supportive Governing Board which provides essential links between the school, the Local Authority and the wider community.  Through regular liaison its members oversee the conduct and work of every area of the school.  They assist the school by bringing any problems to the attention of the Local Authority or the Department for Education (DfE) and by making suggestions which help staff in their work.

 

All Governors have an area of responsibility for which they are linked to the relevant member of staff. Governors come into school to see how we teach and to support our work.
