Educational Teaching Assistants
Our team at East Bierley are here to make a difference. If you need to speak to someone at any time, please speak to your child's class teacher or the member of staff at the classroom door on a morning, a member of staff in the office or Mrs Upham (who is often to be found in the playground on a morning before school).
We know that working with parents and carers helps us provide the best possible start for your child. If you have any questions, queries or concerns, please do not hesitate to talk to us. Similarly, if you want to tell us about something amazing, we love to hear about that too.
Our governors are made up from a cross-section of the community, including parents, staff, church members and local business people. Governors provide an invaluable service to the school, giving up their time for free. Across the country school governors make up the largest volunteer force in the UK.
Governors at East Bierley CE (VC) Primary School work very hard to ensure our school is the best it can be. They work tirelessly to ensure we meet the needs of our children and meet the statutory duties for primary schools.
Governors have quickly gained an accurate view of what is working well and what could be better still, and are fully committed to the success of the school. Through regular visits, they assure themselves that pupils are well cared for, safe and now achieving well. They offer a healthy balance of challenge and support to [the headteacher] and [her team].

If you wish to contact our Governors, this should be done in writing addressed to the Chair of Governors, Mr T Preece. It should be passed to Mrs Russell in our school office and she will ensure it is passed on.

School's are required to publish details about their governors and (from September 2016) their attendance record at meetings. Please see the files below for full details of our governors.
