Welcome to our Governors’ section.


The Board of Governors of North Bradley Primary School meet regularly in order to ensure that the best possible broad and balanced education is provided for all the children attending the school to enable them to reach their full potential and for them to be given the opportunities and confidence to prepare for their next steps in life.

The Governors ensure responsibility for the children's wellbeing and safety.

By working closely with the senior leadership of the school, they also ensure that the Christian values of tolerance, inclusiveness and forgiveness , amongst others, are upheld.
