Welcome to the Melbourne Infant School website on behalf of the Governing Body.
We would like to start by saying how very proud we are of the school and all that the children, staff, Governors and families achieve in working together.
As a Governing Body we have a very important role to play in working with the Headteacher to lead the direction of the school into the future.
Our roles include;
- Developing a shared ethos and creating a clear vision for the school.
- Being involved in the strategic and financial planning of the school.
- Acting as a critical friend to the Headteacher
- Being accountable by evaluating the success of the school.
Our Governing Body is made up of Staff, Parents, Local Authority and Community representatives.
Should you wish to find out more information about our Governing Body, we can be contacted via the school.

The governing board of Melbourne Infant School recognise the importance of having a board which is reflective of our local community. We believe this is important, because recognising and valuing diversity helps us to improve our school and reflects the needs of everyone in our school community.
Data on the diversity of the board (including data on age, gender and ethnicity) is currently being collected to inform recruitment and training needs, and to ensure diversity in the board. Due to our relatively small governing board size, for the protection of personal data of governors, this data will not be published online as individual governors could be identified from the data provided.
