The Governing Body of Little Bloxwich are a volunteer group of people who wish to help the School be a exciting & safe place in which our children learn & our staff can develop their careers. The Governors are parents, members of the local community, local authority officials, Church officials, members of staff & the Head Teacher. There are over 300,000 school governors nationally, all volunteers. Their role has become more important as schools have gained increasing autonomy. The Governing Body complements and enhances school leadership by providing support and challenge.
