Our school has a Board of Governors made up of parent, staff, church, local authority and community representatives. Our Governing Body is committed to driving high standards of educational achievement, and to ensuring that the school environment is one in which all can 'be the best that they can be', and enjoy their time at our school. We are focused on some very clear targets and are lucky to have a talented, passionate and committed staff team in place, working towards these goals.

Quick Guide to the different types of Governors:

Parent Governors
We are entitled to have four at our School, with each post lasting for four years. Their role is to represent the view of parents at Governor's meetings. They are always happy to be approached to discuss matters relating to Uley School. The next available post will arise at the end of this academic year.

Co-opted, LA (Local Authority) and Staff Governors
Each Governor serves to put forward their view at Governors meetings, which is representative of the group of people for which they stand.

Foundation Governor
The role of this Governor is to bring to the Governing Body, an informed regard for the Church nature of our School. They must ensure that the School's Christian ethos is preserved and developed and that the religious worship reflects the tradition of the Church of England.

Foundation Ex-officio Governor
This is the minister of the parish.
