Any correspondence needs to be addressed to the school, for the attention of the chair of governors and this will be passed to them.

What we do

The Governing body is responsible for the strategic management of our school and makes decisions about a wide range of issues, including:

Ensuring accountability, acting as a ‘critical friend’ to the Head Teacher, monitoring and evaluating the school’s progress, budgetary allocation and control, planning for the long term future of the school, setting the school’s aims and values, appointing senior members of staff including the Head Teacher.

The Governing Body has several committees such as Finance and Resource Management and Standards and Curriculum. 

How are Governors appointed

There are several different groups responsible for appointing governors, although once appointed all governors essentially perform the same role.

Community governors are intended to represent the community served by the school and are appointed by the governing body itself. Authority governors are appointed by the Local Authority of the school. Parent governors usually have children at the school and have been elected to join the governing body by the parents. If it is not possible to fill a parent vacancy this way the governing body may appoint parents of children at other schools. Staff governors are elected on to the governing body by staff at the school.

More information on Governors and the role of the Governing body can be found on the Lincolnshire County Council website.
