Our Governing Body

Chair of Governors - Mr Gary Robson

Dear Parents and Carers

I would like to introduce myself. My name is Gary Robson, and I am the Chair of Governors at Tetherdown. I began as a parent Governor four years ago and have two children in the school. I am a Management Consultant in my day job.

As Governors, we share a common objective which is the wider school community - working in partnership with you as parents and carers alongside the school staff to ensure that every child can succeed and reach their potential.

To achieve this, and to carry out our role as governors effectively, we need to know what issues are important to you (so we remain responsive) and ensure that you know what issues governors are discussing (so that we remain accountable).  This is why, as governors, we work closely with Mr Woodward, Headteacher and staff to ensure that we continue to deliver a high standard of education.

You will be able to find detailed information about the role of Governors in the section Guide to being a Governor.
