A Dawlish Learning Partnershp School

Governors

The governing body is made up of parent, staff, local authority and community representatives.  They are very involved in the school and are a point of contact if you have any queries or comments. You can email them at governors@cockwoodschool.co.uk.

The role of the school governors is a complex one involving overseeing the curriculum, management and buildings of the school.

The two main committees of the Governing Body are the Teaching & Learning Committee and the Resources Committee. For more information, click on the link below to see the full current committees structure:
