We would like to welcome you to the Governors section on our school website. We hope you enjoy looking through the website to find out about Longwood Primary school and see some of the wonderful pictures and work that our children are currently doing.
There are ten Governors on Longwood’s Governing Body and we work with the Head Teacher Mrs. James and her staff to ensure Longwood pupils get the best from their time in the school. Mrs James with assistance from the Senior Leadership team is responsible for day-to-day management of the school. The Governors, in co-operation with the Head Teacher, set the school’s aims, strategies, and policies and fulfil other important roles. Over the years the Governing Body has taken many important strategic decisions that have influenced the life of the school, including becoming part of the Tame Valley Cooperative Learning Trust in 2013.
