Governors Welcome

Dear All,

On behalf of the Governors of Uplands School, I would like to offer you a warm welcome to our school. As a Governing Body we are very proud of our young people and would like to thank all parents and staff for the support and encouragement they give.

We are here to support and encourage the Headteacher, Senior Leadership Team and teaching staff as a “critical friend”, as well as challenging and supporting the school in delivering its vision, mission and values.

We often attend school events, so look out for us and please come and have a chat. Otherwise, please do not hesitate to contact me at kwest@uplandsschool.org.uk or through the Headteacher, Fiona Clark, via the school office.

Kind regards,

Kim West
Chair of Governors



Governors are responsible for ensuring that the National Curriculum is taught in accordance with current legislation.  They are responsible for the recruitment of staff, for use of the building and for prudent financial management of the school.  To discharge these duties they are assisted by Governor Support and staff at the Local Authority (LA).

Full Governors’ meetings are held every term and a copy of the minutes are published which parents may see upon request.  A copy is held in the school office. The individual Committees (Staffing & Curriculum and Health & Safety & Premises) meet frequently throughout the academic year.

The Chair of the Governors can be contacted via the school. If you would like further information about the work of the Governors or would like to raise any issues or concerns then please contact the Clerk to the Governors, Heather Large via the school office on 01793 493910.
