Hello, my name is Richard Lee, Chair of Delta Federation's Board of Governors which oversees both Drayton Park and Brooksward schools. 


As governors we work closely with the Executive Head, Senior Leadership Team and all staff to ensure that your children receive high quality education and support alongside ensuring the smooth running of the school. 


We are actively seeking new governors to join the board and would encourage anyone who is interested to get in touch with us, it is a real privilege to be supporting the learning and development of all the wonderful children across the schools. 


If you would like to explore what the role of a governor entails, or would like to speak to the governors or myself about anything relating to the schools please contact me via email - or leave your name, number and a summary of what you would like to talk to me about with either of the school offices.

What do the Governors do?

School Governors make collective decisions as part of the Governing Body whose primary function is to help raise the educational standards and performance of a school by supporting the work of the Headteacher and staff.


How is the Governing Body made up?

There are a number of Governor Types - Parent governors who are elected by the parents, Local Authority governors who are appointed by Milton Keynes Council, Partnership governors elected by the Governing Body and Staff governors who are elected by the staff. You can also have Co-opted and Associate Governors  

Drayton Park school has 2 Committees:

  1. Finance, Premises and Personnel Committee
  2. Teaching and Learning Committee


What are the responsibilities of each Committee?

All committees contribute to the school's Strategic Development Plan and monitor progress on the implementation of this regularly. They also contribute to the preparation of the School Profile and help the school to review its performance so that the Self Evaluation Form, as required by OFSTED is kept up to date. They also consider and recommend for adoption any new or revised policies pertaining to the particular Committee. The Headteacher is a member of all committees. Committee meetings take place in the evenings and each committee usually meets once per term.  Other key responsibilities are listed below.
