Meet our Governing Board

At Brockwell Nursery and Infant school we have a proactive Governing Board and we welcome our Governors into school regularly to either visit classes, meet with staff, conduct Learning Walks or to take part in training.

Our Governors hold regular meetings usually twice per term, where they discuss the general management of the school. When the period of office for a Governor expires, nominations / elections are organised as appropriate.
