Drew Primary School


The Governors of Drew Primary School are committed to supporting the school to become the best provision possible both for our own students and as a community and borough resource.

They are dedicated to the school and are effective in helping define the strategic direction of the school and questioning and challenging to ensure excellent practice across all areas of school development.

As in other multi-academy trusts, our Local Governing Body is accountable to Trust Directors and plays a fundamental advisory role to this higher Board. For more information about the Learning in Harmony Trust’s governance structures, please visit the dedicated Trust page on our website.
