Governors Information

The governors play a really important role at Lampard. They bring a huge amount of skill, ideas and enthusiasm to the school. Part of their role is to challenge the Headteacher and members of the leadership team, to ensure that everything we do is for the benefit of students and to improve the quality of teaching and learning.

If you would like more information about what the governors do or if you need to contact a governor, please use the contact form.

Governors will aim to reply to you within 5 working days.
