Governors

We are fortunate to have a thriving Governing Body who take an active role in the life of the school.

The governing body is a corporate and legal body with a general responsibility for the conduct of the school with a view to supporting Poplar school’s  aims and vision providing a broad and balanced curriculum in a safe and stimulating environment. The governing body is made up of Staff Governors, Parent Governors, Local Authority Governors and Co-opted Governors. The full governing body meets six times a year.
