Welcome to Goodrich from the Chair of Governors

Richard Cottrell, Chair of Governors.

Richard Cottrell, Chair of Governors.

Community School Governors have oversight of the conduct of the school and, in partnership with the Headteacher and Southwark Council, the responsibility for providing the National Curriculum. 

Governors also provide essential links between the school and the local community and between the school and the Council. The Council relies on governing bodies to bring to its attention matters of concern and to make suggestions which will help the Headteacher and the staff in the delivery of an education service which provides for equality and quality.

Any of the Governors can be contacted via the School Office. Either leave a note that will be passed on to the appropriate Governor or leave your name and phone number and the Governor will ring you.

I can be contacted directly at chairofgovernors@goodrich.southwark.sch.uk

Dame Sylvia Morris DBE
Clerk to the Governing Body

As a former inner city Headteacher, I have a passionate interest in ensuring all children receive the best possible standard of education. I have been Clerk to the Full Governing Body since March 2014. The role of the clerk is to advise and support on governance, constitutional and procedural matter, to provide effective administrative support and manage information efficiently and effectively. I may also be asked to clerk statutory appeal committees or panels the governing body is required to convene. The Full Governing Body meets once a term as does each of the separate committees.

Contact can be made via the school office.
