Meet the Governors

The school Governors play an integral part in the life of Foley Infant Academy. They generously give their time to support all areas of the school, providing a link between the MAT Trust Board, parents and the community - feeding into the Trust’s oversight and management of the school throughout their term of office.


Wherever appropriate, please contact the school at info@foleyacademy.com. Should you need to contact the Chair of Governors, please email the Clerk to Governors at shateley@manormat.com.
