Ladygrove Primary School

Meet the Governors

At Ladygrove, we believe in educating the individual, fostering talents that are not just academic but developing sporting and musical interests, which are nurtured and encouraged.


We work hard to prepare children for life in 21st century Britain, by teaching children the importance of sustainability, the difference between right and wrong and how to get along with people from other backgrounds and cultures. Our children deserve the best and we see excellence in teaching as laying the foundations for life long success. We teach our children to become ‘good learners’; developing skills of resilience, reflection, reciprocity and resourcefulness; so they are prepared with learning skills that will prepare them for life in an ever-changing world! We strive for all of our children to reach their full potential, through providing a context rich curriculum which broadens their experiences and develops their imagination, creativity and fascination in learning in a safe and happy environment.

Our Governing Body:

Our Governing Body is made up of school staff, parents and people in our local community who work hard to improve outcomes for children. We have four different types of Governors. These are parent governors (elected by the parents/carers of children who attend our school), staff governors (elected by the staff), Local Authority Governors (appointed by the Local Authority) and co-opted governors who are co-opted by the Governing Body.

Committee Information:

We currently have separate committees for Health and Safety and Finance and Personnel. Each of these committees meets half termly and reports back to the full governing body.
