Millfields Governing Body

 

 

Governors come from all walks of life but share a common interest - Millfields Primary School

The Governors are responsible for effective strategic management of the school, for the school budget and for Health & Safety. The help to set and monitor the school philosophy and policies, which is accomplished by meeting twice every half term.
