Governors

Welcome to our Governors’ section. 

Please find below details of how our Governing body is structured, including the names, categories, responsibilities and terms of appointment for each Governor.

 

THE GOVERNING BODY

 

The Governing Body of Primrose Hill School, when full, consists of 13 people. All have been appointed in accordance with the relevant Acts of Parliament. 

 

The Governing Body are like a board of directors. They work in partnership with the Headteacher to make decisions about how the school is run in order to improve the quality of education and ensure pupil progress.

 

Governors are responsible for:

 

  • Setting the strategic direction for the school and ensuring that school improvement is in line with the school’s vision and aims;
  • Ensuring the school budget is spent wisely and effectively and in a way that helps the school to meet its vision;
  • Holding the Headteacher and Senior Leadership Team to account by asking challenging questions and monitoring performance; 
  • When required, serve on panels of governors to appoint the headteacher and other senior leadersappraise the headteacherset the headteacher’s pay and agree the pay recommendations for other staffhear the second stage of staff grievances and disciplinary matters and hear appeals about pupil exclusions.

 

Governors meet monthly, either as committees or as a full governing body.  We have two committees that meet once every term:

 

Finance and Resources Committee, which has the main focus on ensuring that the school focuses its money on what is most important for the school.

 

Curriculum and Standards Committee, which meets to review what is being taught and to monitor performance and standards within the school.  

 

All Governors meet as the full governing board once a term to deal with strategic matters and to review overall school performance.

 

Each Governor also has a subject and/or area of school performance that they are specifically assigned to monitor throughout the academic year.

To contact a member of the governing body, please contact the school via telephone on 01257 276688 or email the relevant governor directly using the email addresses below.
