The Coombes Governors are responsible to The Keys Academy Trust for monitoring and evaluating the performance and effectiveness of our school, working closely with the Headteacher and staff. They act as a critical friend and are not involved in the day to day working of the school but work more strategically looking at how we can achieve our vision of ''''''''''''''''A Love of Learning Grows Here''''''''''''''''.
All Governors are volunteers. They are appointed to the Local Governing Body (LGB), by The Keys Academy Trust or by the Diocese in consultation with the Trust and The Coombes. Elections take place within school to elect our parent and staff governors, so look out for information on future vacancies.
Governors begin committee meetings with a Prayer.
