NLS Governors

North Lakes School has a team of Governors who work with the Headteacher to plan for the improvement and development of the school. They come into school frequently and meet regularly to consider issues of leadership and management, teaching and learning, outcomes for pupils, pupil safety and wellbeing. Governors are keen to support the children and parents in planning the best outcomes for the school.  A copy of the school’s Complaints Policy is available on the website. 


This governors section is currently being updated.
