Governors

West Hill Primary School is a vibrant, welcoming and safe learning community in which the children and staff are encouraged and enabled to reach their full potential. We as school governors are proud to be associated with West Hill and very committed to continually raise the school’s high standards. We fulfill our duties by advising, challenging and supporting the Head teacher and the Senior Leadership Team, monitoring activities and progress in school and visiting the school during school hours.

We aim to develop a good understanding between home, staff and governors for the benefit of our pupils. If you would like to learn more about the role of the governors then please get in touch with us through the school office.
