View our safeguarding statement

At Stokes Wood the safeguarding, welfare, physical and emotional well-being of our children and their families are a priority. As such, any concerns which contradict this will be acted on immediately.

Governors

If you are interested in being a governor, please let Mrs Gadsby, the Head Teacher, or Mr Makwana, the Chair of Governors know.

Terms of office last for 4 years when elections then take place for parent governors, community and co-opted governors. Meetings take place once in each term, early in October, February and June. Additional committee meetings take place once or twice a term as required.
