Elsley Primary School's Board of Governors is responsible for setting the strategic direction of the school, ensuring that it
complies with the law, and driving improvement in outcomes for the children by acting as a critical friend to the school.
Following an independent, external review of governance, the board was reconstituted forming a smaller more efficient group, operating under the most recent governance regulations, and re-focused on its strategic priorities.
The board of governors welcomes engagement from parents, staff, children and members of the community.

No governors currently have governing body roles in other schools or educational institutions (September 2023)
