Our Governors

The Maple Primary School Board of Governors is made up of representatives of the Local Authority, parents, teachers and members of the local business community. The Governors are responsible for the general direction of the school. They take decisions concerning staffing, curriculum and finance and premises.

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
