Governors

The role of the governing body is crucial for the effective leadership and management of the school. The governing body complements the professional leadership of our Headteacher and senior staff by bringing a range of perspectives to bear on issues facing the school.  Each governor is also a trustee of the Hotwells Primary School Trust.  If you wish to contact a Governor, you can do so via the school office or by emailing: governors@hotwells.bristol.sch.uk.
