A Warm Welcome from the Nessfield Governors


Whether you are visiting this site for the first time;
or whether you are the parent of one of our pupils;
or if you are thinking of sending your child to our school;
or if your child already attends Nessfield,
we hope you find this information useful.


First and foremost, as Governors of Nessfield, we are proud to play a part in ensuring the best possible education for all the children. We are a dedicated team who share a real concern and interest in the life and work of the school.

The governing body has three main roles. We work alongside the senior management team to oversee the progress of the school, we check that the systems and procedures are in place and are followed properly and we contribute to the long term planning of the school. In summary the Governors are often described as the Critical Friends to the school, a great description of our work.
