Welcome to the Governors’ page
My name is Gill Mortimer and I am the Chair of the local Governing Body at Great Bedwyn School. Governors work in a voluntary capacity with the Headteacher and the senior leadership team to provide the strategic direction for the school.
Our role is to ensure that the children receive the very best education that Great Bedwyn School can provide. We don’t get involved in the day-to-day running of the school, but set the criteria by which the school is managed. Governors both support and challenge the Headteacher and senior staff to ensure that the school performs as well as it should and that all pupils have the very best opportunity to learn and grow.
We have two sub committees – Finance and Premises coupled with Learning and Progress. These Committees meet two weeks before each Full Governing Body to discuss the issues that need addressing particular to each sub committee.
We all come from very different backgrounds and are always looking for fresh faces to join us. If it is something that you want to know more about then please contact the school office and one of us will be in touch with you.
