Governing Body

The Governing Body has a responsibility to support and monitor the work of the school and its leadership team. The body is made up of Governors representing staff, parents, the community and the local authority. Our governors meet regularly to discuss all aspects of school leadership and management. The Chair of Governors can be contacted through the school office on 01254 261609 or by emailing office@cedars.blackburn.sch.uk.

Picture 1 Cllr Akhtar Authority Governor
Picture 2 Mrs Mary Hodge - Co-opted Governor.I have worked at Cedars Primary School as a teaching assistant for 29 years.. I have been married for 28 years and in my spare time I enjoy fell walking and camping in the Lake District and Scotland. I am on the Teaching and Learning Committee as well as the Full Governors Committee.
Picture 3 Chair of Governors: I joined in March 2017. I currently work full-time for Blackburn with Darwen Borough Council in the role of Governance & Performance Manager, I have two boys aged 10 and 5. I hope my previous work experience and knowledge gained in the Governors Training will help me support the leadership of Cedars Primary to continue achieving success into the future. I look forward to working on the Teaching & Learning and Finance & Resources Committee as well as the Full Governing Body. My hobbies include swimming, keeping fit and listening to music.
Picture 4 My name is Mrs Truman and I am the new Headteacher. I feel very proud to be part of the Cedars family and everyone has made me feel very welcome. I have been a Headteacher of a large Primary school in Liverpool for the past 5 years and I am excited to be leading Cedars now that we are one school on one site.
