The governors of Edward Wilson Primary School meet four times a year as a full Governing Body and each committee also meets each term. Minutes from the Full Governing Body can be found on the school’s website.
Working with the Headteacher and his Senior Leadership Team, the Governing Body play an important role in helping shape and develop the strategic direction of the school; providing skilled support and challenge to ensure that our aspirational targets are achieved.
Our parent governors often attend our weekly Coffee Mornings, held every Thursday. All parents are welcome to attend – please see Mrs Taddese for more information.
