Meet the Governors
Welcome to the Governors’ pages of Oxbridge Lane Primary School’s website.
In this section, you’ll find all you need to know about what we do and who we are, and a bit more besides.
The Governing Board is made up of a wide-ranging group of people but the one thing we all have in common is a passion for, and commitment to, Oxbridge Lane Primary School. We believe all children at the school should get a high-quality education while enjoy coming to school and having wonderful experiences.
We hope you’ll spend some time looking around this section and getting to know us a bit better. We will be attending school events, so keep an eye out for us.
Thanks for your continuing support.
