May I add my welcome to Fishergate School. My name is Jackie Hudson and I am the Chair of Governors. I have had three children through Fishergate School and have been on the Governing Body for 9 years.
The Governing Body is comprised of parent representatives, staff, members of the local community and Local Authority representatives. We meet together twice each term to share in the leadership of the school. We support the Headteacher and senior leadership team and ensure they are sufficiently challenged! We fully support the open and inclusive ethos of the school and its desire to serve the local community. York is a great place to bring up children and we are fortunate that Fishergate School is so close to the heart of the City with all the rich learning opportunities this brings.
Many governors are in and around Fishergate School on a regular basis and we are always happy to meet parents, friends or members of the local community. You will always receive a warm welcome from the school!Jackie Hudson, Chair of Governors
The Governing Body is made up of representatives of the school staff, parents, the Local Authority and members of the local community. The chair of the governing body can be contacted via the school, or directly by emailing email@example.com.
