Who are the Governors?

The Governing Body have a very important role in the management of the school.  We are a group of volunteers made up of teaching and non-teaching staff, parents, community representatives and members appointed by the local authority, all of whom are local to Loughton.  We work closely with Lizzie Bancroft, the rest of the staff and the local authority, to carry out our statutory responsibilities.
