Meet the Governors

Meet the Governors:

The role of the school governor is demanding but very rewarding and is a good way to give back to your local community.  School governing bodies are responsible for working with the school to ensure that it delivers a good quality education. Together with the headteacher, who is responsible for day-to-day management, they set the school’s aims and policies.

All governors attend 2 governors meetings per term- one business meeting and one standards meeting. Please scroll down to meet the governors.

You can find the Governors Register of Interests here.

You can find the Governors Attendance here.

You can find Transform Trust’s Scheme of Delegation here.

The Chair of Governors, Mr Graham Byers, can be contacted at the school address:

Mr. G. Byers, Brocklewood Primary School, Fircroft Avenue, Bilborough, Nottingham, NG8 3AL.

Alternatively, you can email: governors@brocklewood.nottingham.sch.uk

    Chair


    I joined the Governing Body in May 2014 after retiring from teaching.

    Before retirement I had been a Primary School teacher here in the City of Nottingham having worked at schools in Wilford, Bulwell, The Meadows and Sneinton after I moved here in the early 70’s from Manchester.

    I have taught every age range from Year 6 to Reception during my career and combined my last 12 years of teaching with the role of Local Secretary of the teaching union, the NASUWT.

    As well as being a governor at Brocklewood, I am also a Parish councillor for my local area and do volunteer work for a befriending service in the County.
