Bosvigo School Governors

The Governing Board at Bosvigo School takes a strategic overview of the running of the school. We work closely with the school senior leadership team to develop the school's development plan. Governors set standards and objectives, review policies and approve the school's budget. We act as a 'critical friend' and we support, challenge and advise the school. We visit the school and get to know staff and children. We keep standards under review with the aim that children at Bosvigo achieve their full potential. To find out more of what we do, please look at our pages on the website, particularly our Governors' Annual Statement.


At Bosvigo School we have a strong working relationship between our governors, staff, children and parents. We believe that by having governors who are heavily involved in the school the children benefit and Bosvigo is a better place to be.

Clerk to the Governors is Sheila Harris.

If you need to contact the governors you can leave a message school reception or email us at governor@bosvigo.cornwall.sch.uk.

Katie Tucker: Chair of Governors

Co-opted governor: I was extremely keen to become a Governor at Bosvigo School as I wanted to offer my skills to engage positively with my local school that I hope to have at least a decade of relationship with.

Education sits at the heart of young people's life - both for skills and building friendships and it's important to me to play a part in ensuring they have an environment where this is nurtured and developed.

I have three young children, one of whom who is at the school and I've been delighted to see how he has grown during his time at Bosvigo so far.

Parent governor: I was privileged to be elected a Parent Governor in November 2015. I put my name forward because I care passionately that the school which serves our local children should be the best school it can possibly be. I want the children who are educated here to be encouraged to reach their full potential. I think it is essential that our children are given the confidence and support to raise their aspirations to achieve not just their expected potential, but well beyond it. I have two daughters at the school and really enjoy playing an active role in the Bosvigo community.
