Governors

The Governing Body at Colburn School is made up of volunteers who are passionate about ensuring that each and every child in Colburn gets the very best possible start and is given the opportunities to achieve their full potential.  Governors also help to provide a safe and caring environment in which every child can enjoy building happy memories. 

The role of the Governing Body is to provide strategic management and to act as a 'critical friend', supporting the work of the headteacher and other staff.  The Governing Body has a programme of meetings that are scheduled throughout the academic year.  These meetings each takes a different focus (school improvement, financial management etc), as the Governing Body does not operate with a committee structure.  There are currently no associate members.

Who is part of the Governing Body?

Governor/Governorship

Mrs Angie Dale (Chair) - Co-opted
I was in the Royal Signals for 7 years and moved back home in 1996 where I met my husband Richard, we have 3 children, Robert, Madeleine and Harry.  I have been involved in Colburn Community Primary School for over 10 years as a Friend of Colburn School and the fundraising group.  I got involved as a School Governor more than 8 years ago, which I find extremely rewarding, interesting and challenging.  
In September 2013, I was elected Chair of the Governing Body.
