Governing Body

The governing body is a group of volunteers who are committed to delivering the best education for the children of Stonebow.  We work together in providing a strategic direction for the school as well as acting as a critical friend and ensuring accountability. Our role involves monitoring and evaluating the work of the school and asking questions.  If you wish to speak to a Governor please email the Office in the first instance. 

The governing body is made up of a mix of parent, community and staff representatives.  Parent and Staff Governors serve for a period of four years.

DGT = Director, Governor and Trustee.  MDGT = DGT plus also a Member.
