Welcome from the Governor's of Ysgol Y Deri

As Governors, we take immense pride in our school, especially in the dedicated staff who work tirelessly and give their all to ensure our students receive the best education possible.

The Governing Body represents parents, the Local Authority, the community and the school staff. Together, we collaborate to address all aspects of life within the school. Importantly, we strive to understand the school’s goals and how it achieves them. We accomplish this by asking relevant and probing questions during meetings, examining the performance of the pupils and acknowledging their achievements. In addition to our termly meetings and briefings from key staff, we actively visit the school to familiarise ourselves with its strengths and the challenges it faces first-hand.

Another crucial aspect of our role is overseeing the school’s finances to ensure everything is in order. We are committed to ensuring that the funds allocated by the Vale of Glamorgan are well-spent for the benefit of our school community.
