Governors at Blackwell, including Finance

blackwell first school bromsgrove 19It is the governing body's role to support the head teacher in leading the school and act as a 'critical friend' as well as ensuring statutory responsibilities are carried out.  The governing body consists of a range of motivated and committed members with a wide variety of experiences which support the life of the school.  
 
       ...we are very grateful to the leadership, staff and governors . BFS is an amazing school which manages to combine the most caring and nurturing atmosphere with expectations of the highest standard... (Parent comment)
