Meet the Governors

Foley Infant Academy and Brindley Heath Junior Academy share a Local Governing Body. The schools' 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.
