Governing Board

We have 12 Governors on the Governing Board of Sandford School. Seven Co-Opted Governors are selected via the Governing Board for the skills they are able to bring to the table. Another two are Parent Governors who have been elected by parents. We also have one Local Authority Governor, and one Staff Governor elected by Staff. The Headteacher makes up the 12th Governor. We currently have 1 Staff Governor vacancy.  For further information please contact the Co-Chair of Governors at chair@sandford-school.devon.sch.uk
