Dundonald Primary

Our Governors

The governors at Dundonald Primary School work in partnership with the Local Authority (LA) and the school community to provide the best possible education for our children. 

The Role of the Governor

Governors help the school set priorities, develop detailed plans and monitor progress. Sub-committees such as teaching & learning, personnel and resources help the school develop its policies and procedures.  

The governors work with the Senior Leadership team to understand how the school evaluates its performance, to shape the School Development Plan and to monitor the implementation of that plan and its impact on the outcomes for all pupils.
