Abbotswood Primary School

Together We Aim High, Believe and Achieve


The school's governing body is made up from a cross section of the community.  The governors can serve a 4 year term but can be re-elected.  A parent governor must have a child on the school roll at the time of their election but can continue to serve after their child has left the school until the end of that term of office.  South Gloucestershire Council make the political appointments to the school governing body. 


The Full Governing body meet at least once per term (approx 4 times per year) and the Committees meet approx 3 times per year.


If you are interested in becoming a governor or would just like to find out more please speak to Mrs Willoughby or our Chair of Governors Mr Ken Thomas (via the school office)
