Our Governing body are very committed to the continued development of Singleton School. They are pro-active within our school and can often be seen monitoring the standards and talking to our children during school hours.

The Governors feel developing a good relationship with parents is crucial to the success of our school. The Chair of Governors, Laura Walker, provides regular letters to the parents updating them on school developments and actively encourages parents to have a voice, giving them the opportunity to contact her at any time.
