Welcome to the governors web page of Ysgol Y Deri. We as governors are very proud of our school but in particular the staff who work so hard and give so much to ensure the pupils are getting the best from their education. 

The role of the governors is one that covers all aspects of the life within the school but importantly we understand what the school wants to do and how it does that. We then see that the school is working so that the pupils have the best possible education.

To do this we examine what we want the school to achieve and work together as Governors, Staff Parents and Pupils in a team to make certain it all works. Our work is also to challenge the Headteacher to provide us as Governors with evidence that all the staff are working hard and all the pupils achieving the best that they possibly can. Finally we have to see that the finances of the school are in order and that the money we have from the Vale of Glamorgan council is well spent.

Mr. Tim Exell - Chair of Governors
