Working together for success

Meet The Governors

Welcome from the Chair of Governors


The Delegated Governing Committee are a voluntary group made up from parents (elected by you), staff representatives,  and members of the community.  We bring a broad spectrum of skills to enable us to offer the necessary challenge and support to school leaders and staff to ensure that all pupils at Great Malvern Primary School get the best education possible.  


We value your input and want to hear your views on school issues.  How can it be improved?  What information would you like to see included? 

What does the Delegated Governing Committee do?


Governors are all volunteers who support the school’s management by reviewing the educational provision, teaching outcomes and priorities for the development of the school.


The Delegated Governing Committee meet six times a year as a group to discuss the running of the school, with a specific focus on the responsibilities delegated by the Directors of Mercian Educational Trust.  With a specific focus upon pupil outcomes, curriculum and teaching and learning, we monitor the progress of the School Improvement Plan and make recommendation to the Trust Board.
