Tyntesfield Named Governors

Every governor has a Named Governor role, that is they have a specific area of responsibility.

The aims of the Named Governor roles are:

  • Support the school in promoting high standards in the subject.
  • Support the staff and school in delivering the subject / area.
  • Fostering closer links between the Governing Body and the school.
  • Support the Governing Body in carrying out its statutory duties.

Named governors find out about their area and gather information to help the governing body make informed decisions.
