Welcome to the part of our website which is designed to give you information about the composition and role of the Local Governing Body of Dallow Primary School. As Governors, we all undertake our extensive commitment to the school on a voluntary basis. We do this because we are immensely proud of Dallow’s many achievements over the years and we are dedicated to supporting and challenging the school so that it provides the very best education for the children in our care.

We are always keen to receive comments about the school, things that you are pleased with or things you think could be done better. If you have any comments you wish to make to Governors, then please contact us using the contact form within this website.
