The Board of Governors

The Board of Governors of Maghaberry Primary School and Nursery Unit seek to ensure that the school provides pupils with the best educational opportunities possible. They support the setting of plans and policies of the school, employ the school staff and manage the expenditure of the school budget.

It is important to note that governors are appointed in a voluntary unpaid capacity for a four year term of office and meet regularly to conduct a wide range of business.

The Board of Governors consists of members with varied skills, knowledge and experience and work effectively together in the best interests of the school children. The children, parents and staff greatly appreciate the contribution which the Board of Governors makes to the life and running of the school.
