What do School Governors do?
Governors are volunteers who have an interest in the role of schools in society and wish to make a positive contribution to their communities. School Governing bodies are responsible for working with the school to ensure that it delivers a good quality education. Together with the Headteacher, who is reponsible for the day-to-day management, they set the school's aims and policies.
Key roles and responsibilities include:
Our school Governors meet termly as a whole Governing body. In addition to this, each Governor is expected to join one or two sub-committees, which cover different areas such as the curriculum, finance or buildings.

My name is Mark Yarnold and I am married to Anne. We have two children Ben and Kate who both attended Tenbury Primary School.This is where my involvement with the school all began back in 2003 when I started as a Parent Governor. When the children left the school I stayed and became a Community Governor.I have chaired both the Resources committee and premises committee as it was called then, and for several years took the role of Maths Link Governor.
Anne and I run a small business from our home in Burford selling quad bikes.We have a main Yamaha franchise which involves selling new and used quad bikes mainly to farmers and smallholders. We have a shop and workshop where we sell parts and accessories and service and repairs.
My main hobby is music and I am a member of Tenbury Town band, where I play the trumpet and have the honour of being the Band President. I became Chair of Governors in 2013, a role which I feel very privileged to fulfill.
