Welcome to the Melbourne Infant School website on behalf of the Governing Body.

I would like to start by saying how very proud we are of the school and all that the children, staff, Governors and families achieve in working together.

As a Governing Body we have a very important role to play in working with the Headteacher to lead the direction of the school into the future.

Our roles include;

  • Developing a shared ethos and creating a clear vision for the school.
  • Being involved in the strategic and financial planning of the school.
  • Acting as a critical friend to the Headteacher
  • Being accountable by evaluating the success of the school.

Our Governing Body is made up of Staff, Parents, Local Authority and Community representatives.

Should you wish to find out more information about our Governing Body, I can be contacted via the school.


Yours sincerely,

Mr. David Smith

Chair of Governors
