The Governors meet as a whole group at least once each term to discuss the needs and achievements of the school.

Communication

 A ‘who’s who’ on the Governing Body can be viewed in the school hall.

The Governors frequently visit the school for any special events including open days or specified Parent/Teachers Evenings.  The Governing Body welcomes questions and comments.

Parent governors are often in the playground at school pick-up/drop-off times.

Any parents who wish to ask a question or are interested in becoming a Governor in the future may email the Chair of Governors at governors@maple.herts.sch.uk
