Governors

Information About the Governing Body for Egton CE VA Primary School

Danby School federated with Egton School on 16th September 2021 and a new governing body was convened.  Our federation is named St Hilda's Moorland Federation.  As such this page is currently being revised and some information maybe out of date. (17.09.21)

Our Governors play a vital role in our school life.  Not only do they regularly meet as part of their role in the Leadership and Management of the school but they are also involved in many different aspects in the lives of the children whilst they are at school.  Our governors are friendly and approachable and you are most welcome to discuss any aspect of school life with them either as a parent, prospective parent or visitor to our school.
