Parent Governor Information
The Parent Governors at Radnor provide a parent viewpoint on the strategic management of the school, as we also have children at Radnor.
We run parent surgeries on a monthly basis to make sure that you have the opportunity to talk to us and let us know what you think about the school, ask questions or raise concerns or make suggestions.
We won’t always know the answer straight away, but we will be able to listen and advise you on how to get one. Sometimes this might mean that we take a question away and find an answer for you, and sometimes we may advise that you need to speak to the teachers or Mrs James.
If you can’t make these meetings, you can also contact us in the following ways:
Issues raised to governors through parent surgeries/correspondence include:
Next surgery dates and times:
Governor surgeries are usually held on the first Monday of each month from 6.15-7.00 pm at Chapter Arts Centre. The next governor surgery will be on Monday 5th October. If you would rather arrange to see a governor earlier in the day at school pick up time, please email the school, who will find a governor able to meet you on a mutually convenient date.
