The Federation of Elson and Gomer Infant Schools Governing BodyFed First Logo (NGA Champion) AW

Would you like to join us on the Governing Body?

We are currently looking for members of the community to join us on the Governing Body of the Elson & Gomer Infant School Federation.

We would be especially interested in speaking with you if you have expertise/knowledge with regard to property management or income generation.

However, if you have an interest in education, and a passion to ensure that we continue to provide the children with a safe, nurturing, happy environment in which together we can all shine, then we would very much like to hear from you!

Please notify the administrative staff at either school if you are interested in this rewarding role and they will put you in touch with a governor for a chat.
