Miss Maggie Smith
Chair of Governors

All the members of the Governing Body of Herringham Primary Academy are dedicated to improving and building upon the excellent learning and teaching within the school.  We do this by constantly supporting and challenging the Management and staff.  The governing body meet twice termly to formulate the strategic planning, budgeting and to overview the implementation of school policies.

Many of the governors help within the school, working in the classrooms, helping with reading, maths and science.  By meeting and talking to the children and staff we are able to monitor progress and to support the staff in maintaining the high standards of excellence the school is achieving.

The governors are always impressed with the politeness and good behaviour of the children and their willingness to learn and to help others to learn.
