Local School Board
The Local School Board or Governing Body comprises of 14 individuals who work together to lead and manage our School.
Black Firs School is part of the CmaT family of schools.
Our Governors have an active role in the life of the School. They have a strategic view. They ensure the quality of educational provision and have responsibility to be 'critical friends' - challenging and monitoring the performance of the School.
Governors are appointed as representatives of three groups: Appointed, Parent and Staff governors and all serve for a four year term of office. In addition, School Council are invited each term to feedback their views to Governors.
If you wish to contact our Local Governing Body Chair, Dr David Wood, you can do so via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by using the contact form or by writing to Dr D Wood, Chair of Governors, c/o Black Firs School, Longdown Road, Congleton, CW12 4QJ.
Our Local Governing Board has three Sub-Committees: Finance; Curriculum, Personnel & Welfare; General Purposes. We also have a Strategic working group.
