Our Governors

The Governing Board at Vaughan Primary School want all our young learners to develop to their full potential both academically and socially, so that they become responsible and caring citizens in their later lives.

The role of the Governors’ is to work closely with the Headteacher and leadership team to provide the very best education for all Vaughan.  We are responsible for monitoring and evaluating the performance and effectiveness of the school, for ensuring that the budget is managed prudently and for supporting our excellent team of staff.

We offer a broad and balanced curriculum and aim for enjoyment in learning.  Staff are experienced and dedicated and work in partnership with parents and children.  At the heart of all we do is the current and future wellbeing of our learners, ensuring they have access to an enriched education and the opportunities they deserve.
