The Governors at Cricket Green School are made up of parents, staff, community and local authority representatives. We have a passionate and dedicated team of people with a variety of skills, experience and knowledge who are fully committed to the culture and ethos of the school.
It’s a fantastic privilege to be a governor at a school where the children are always kept at the centre of all we do. Each Governor is “adopted’ by a class and Governors visits are welcomed. Below you will find the list of Governors and their respective classes.
For more information about the role of school governors please contact the school office.
