The Governors at West Cliff take an active role in the life of the school. They come into school regularly to see what is going on, and often meet with staff and children.

We have a mixture of community governors, local authority governors, staff governors and parent governors.

Minutes of our meetings are always available in the school office should you wish to know what we have been working on.

We are currently reviewing our committee structure - this will be updated shortly.
