Welcome to our Governors’ section. 

We are fortunate at Dry Sandford to have a dedicated and enthusiastic group of people acting as governors.

The Governing Body is composed of parents, staff, LA representatives and members of the community with an interest in the school.

Their role is to set broad aims and targets for the school and to monitor the results for which, in turn, they are accountable.

Their central responsibility is to ensure that the school adopts high standards in educational skills and personal development, so that each individual child makes rewarding use of their abilities to realise their full potential.
