Hello, and welcome to the governors section of the school website.

As a governing body we are passionate that every pupil in the school is able to achieve their full potential. We play a key role in holding the headteacher and school leadership team to account over this and setting the strategic direction for the school to ensure that this happens.

Here you will find information about the governing body and its tasks, as well as blogs and newsletters keeping you up to date with what the school governors are doing in and around the school. It also contains the contact information to get in touch with the governing body to ask any questions you may have about the school and its governance.

 Chair of Govenors/ Chair of Finance – Matthew Evans

I have been on the Governing Body at High Green Primary since October 2012 and I enjoy the diversity that the role brings. I’ve got two boys at the school.

In the world of work, I run an up and coming Dust Monitoring Systems business for an environmental monitoring company and these skills that I have learnt over the years, I bring to the governing body.

I try when possible to pick up my sons up from school, so please approach me if you have anything to express to governing body.

Eleanor Boast – Parent Governor

I am a Governor with High Green Primary as from 2017 and I have a son in the school. I decided to apply as parent governor in order to gain a better understanding about the school that my child is going to and to help and support the school. I have found it very interesting finding out more about the school, the teaching and to meet more of the staff!

Aside from being a governor and a mum, I work for Capita Human Resources.
