Our Governors

A Message from the Chair of Governors

Dear Parents/Carers,

I am the current Chair of Governors at Graiseley School.


I am a parent of two School age children within the City and am an experienced School Governance Advisor. I currently work as Training and Development Manager at a company based within Wolverhampton.


The Governors at Graiseley Primary School work effectively with leaders and have considerable responsibility in setting the strategic direction of the school along with the Head teacher and senior leadership team. Governors do not manage schools, this is the role of the Head teacher, but we do oversee the development of the school, the main aim of which is always to provide a high standard of education for all pupils of all abilities. We also oversee the financial performance of the school and make sure that its money is well spent.


At our Governing Board meetings, we closely scrutinise the educational outcomes for our pupils and are actively involved in the school community, supporting, and challenging the Head teacher and senior leaders.


The Governing Board continues to work closely with the headteacher and leadership team to ensure that Graiseley Primary School and its students can continue to thrive and be outstanding in all their achievements and to ensure that the School’s Improvement plan is implemented, monitored, and reviewed on a regular basis.


Governors, staff, parents, and pupils are extremely proud of Graiseley, which we believe creates an environment in which children from a range of backgrounds can work together to build a firm foundation for future academic and personal success. If you wish to know more, please contact the headteacher, Mrs. Julie Humphries, or any of the governors or staff.


Please also feel free to come along and see us either formally or at one of our special events. We would be delighted to see you!
