Greenlands Primary

Our Governing Body

On Behalf of the Governors I am delighted to welcome you to Greenlands Primary School.

The governors are volunteers who have a commitment to the school, its pupils, staff and buildings as well as to the local community of which it is a part. We are all proud to be associated with Greenlands Primary School.

We were pleased to help the school to become a member of Cygnus Academies Trust in February 2019 and everyone at Greenlands Primary School is benefitting from the support that the Trust is giving us.

The governors look forward to continuing to play their part in the life of Greenlands Primary School in the coming school year.

Mel Shackleton, Chair of Governors
