Mead Vale CommunityPrimary SchoolWork Hard. Be Kind.


Welcome toMead Vale CommunityPrimary SchoolWork Hard. Be Kind.


Our role as governors can be demanding but very rewarding. As a Board of Governors, collectively we are responsible for working with our school to ensure that it delivers a good quality education for all of our children.


Each school within ELAN has a Local Governing Body (LGB). The LGB of Mead Vale Community Primary School aims to support the whole community of the school using their varying skills, strengths and expertise from all walks of life to enrich the work of the governing body and improve the governance of the school.


Who can be part of the Local Governing Body?

The LGB of Mead Vale  is made up of representatives of the school staff, parents and the community, who have a special interest in the school and wish to volunteer their time in undertaking the responsibilities delegated to them by the Board of Trustees. These include aspects such as maintaining an overview of the standards and performance achieved in the school, securing a local interest in the school’s strategic development and providing support and challenge for school leaders.


In ALL decision making, the governors are committed to ensuring that the best interests of all children in Mead Vale are the highest priority.


Why is being a governor important?

Being a governor is a rewarding way of making a voluntary contribution to the lives of local young people.


We don’t expect you to be an expert in education, we welcome governors from all walks of life to bring different perspectives and views. You just need to be interested in supporting our school, community and the educational outcomes of our pupils. 


This is your opportunity to give back to the community and shape the lives of children locally as part of their extraordinary education experience with us.
