Welcome to the Governors' section. This page will tell you a little bit of information about each governor and how they help the school. It will also contain key documents, such as the current School Development Plan, which will help you to understand what the school is working towards.
We currently have a full governing body who are listed below:
Rob Denzel - Chair of Governors and Community governor.
Warren Porter - Vice Chair of Governors and Transform Trust representative.
Kerry Gretton - Parent Governor
Amanda Elliott - Community Governor
Michael Walter - Parent Governor
Karen Coaker - Co-opted Governor
Kevin McDonnell - Co-opted Governor
Clare Orchiston - Teacher Governor
Shaun Farrington - Headteacher
When Burford became an academy with the Transform trust we decided to reconstitute our governing body. We did that at a meeting in September 2016 and all the governors above were appointed to serve on the governing body for a period of four years from that point. All our governors have declared they do not have a business or pecuniary interest that prevents them sitting on the governing body.
We hold a termly full governing body meeting. We also hold a termly Strategic Development and Pupils and Personnel committee meeting as well as a Finance and General Purposes Committee. Should you require a copy of any of these papers please ask at the school office.
The correspondence address for the Chair of Governors is the school address.
