LOCAL Governing Body

Introduction from the Chair of Governors

I am enormously privileged to have become the Chair of Governors of Derby Moor Academy.  It is my aim to ensure that the school continues to improve year on year until it is recognised by all in the local community and by Ofsted that this is indeed an outstanding school.  I will lead your Governors in their task of setting the strategic direction for the school, holding the Principal to account for the students' outcomes and ensuring that your taxpayer money is being well spent.  Every student is of equal value to every other student and deserves to be kept safe, to enjoy their learning in school and to leave equipped with the best qualifications that they could possibly attain.
