We work with the Headteacher and staff to ensure that all the children at Ferndale Community school acquire the knowledge, skills, and attitudes to enable them to develop as complete citizens of the future.

Who are we? We include representatives of parents and teachers together with members appointed by the Local Education Authority and we co-opt members from the local and business communities.

What do we do? We agree and adopt the aims and values of the school, its policies in various areas, and appoint staff. We set and monitor the school budget, ensuring that the National Curriculum is taught and that the School Improvement Plan is kept relevant in these changing times. We ensure that all pupils, including those with special needs, play a full part in the school and are encouraged and helped to reach their full potential.

The Chair of Governors is currently Mrs Amanda Thomas. For communication please communicate via the school.
