Governors

The Governing Body at The Florence Nightingale Academy comprises Parent, Staff, Co-opted and Local Authority Governors who work together contributing to the whole school vision for the future of the school. No one type of Governor has a majority.

Our Governing Body is made up of two committees:

  • Finance Committee

These committees meet each term, while the full Governing Body meets three times a year.
