Meet the Governors

Welcome to our Governing Body from Reverend Ron Iveson, Chair of Governors

Like all schools, Bidston Village is overseen by a Governing Body. Our Governing Body is is made up of representatives of the church, the school community and the wider community. We work with the Headteacher and it is our job to support and challenge her and her team to ensure that your child's school experience is the best that it can be.

We agree the strategic plans for the school, set the school's budget, set targets for school and we monitor the school's overall performance.

Most importantly, we are here for you and for your child.

If you need to contact us at any time you can do so via our school office at . We are currently in the process of appointing a new Clerk to Governors.  Alternatively if you wish to contact our Parent Governors you can e-mail them at

Kind Regards

Ron Iveson

Chair of Governors
