Governors

Governors

Every school has a Governing Body to represent the public in the running of schools. The Governing Body supports the Headteacher and staff and is accountable to its stakeholders for the school's overall performance and for decisions it has made.

St Georges Primary School has 13 Governors made up as follows;

  • 6 Community Governors. A community governor are people who, in the opinion of governing body, have the skills required to contribute to the effective governance and success of the school. 
  • 5 Parent Governors. A parent governor is a representative and not a delegate of parents and should not become personally involved in any individual concerns. 
  • Head Teacher Governor.  It is expected practice for head teachers to be a member of the governing Body.
  • 1 Staff Governor. A staff governor role is not to represent staff, nor stand alongside the Headteacher in being held to account by the governing body, but to operate as part of the governing body to provide strategic leadership and to hold the headteacher to account.  Mrs Horton is a staff governor

The Governors are the formal strategic body who meet once each term to set priorities for the school and agree on the long term plans including the school budget. This section includes minutes of their meetings, information about vacancies and the different types of governors.
