Meet the Governors


If you are interested in joining our governing body please contact the School Business Manager by telephone 0161 912 1895 or by email  

Please read the following for guidance on what being a governor at the school entails.


The Governing Body at Longford Park School and its Committees meet once a term. Governors serve a four year term of office and may seek to be re-appointed. Parents have the opportunity to stand for election as a parent governor and so become involved in the running of the school. The Governing Body is also made up from a representative from the Local Authority, Staff Members and other Co-opted members from the wider community and businesses.
The Governors have a general responsibility for determining the policy and effective management of the school, acting within the framework set by national legislation and by the policies of the Local Authority. However, the Headteacher controls the day to day running of the school.
Ultimately, the governors answer to the parents and the Department of Education for the running of the school. The Governing Body is part of the school partnership ethos at Longford Park School which works voluntarily for the good of the school with the interests of the pupils as paramount.
