Peak Forest CE Primary School is part of the Woodland Federation of Peak district Schools and shares a governing body with Great Hucklow CE Primary School and Stoney Middleton CE Primary School. The governing body for the Woodland Federation of Peak District Schools consists of 13 governors; 2 Parent governors, 1 Ex-Officio governor, 2 Foundation governors, 1 Local Authority governor, 1 staff governor, 5 co-opted governors (2 of whom are staff members) and the executive headteacher.
Our governors are drawn from a range of important stakeholders from our three schools - the parents, staff, church and local authority. They work very hard on behalf of the schools and often have a specific area that they monitor and help to develop. Governors are elected for a 4 year term of office.
