Hyde Church of England Primary School


The Governors at Hyde are supportive and committed members of our school family and provide an important link to our wider local community and church. As a team they are responsible for the strategic leadership and management of our school and help to monitor, challenge and safeguard the quality of education we offer at Hyde.

The Governing body consists of Parent Governors, Staff Governors, Local Authority governors, co-opted Governors and Foundation Governors  and bring a range of valuable skills and experience to our school. They work in partnership with our Head Teacher but are not involved in day to day operational matters.
