Come and meet the staff at our school!
What is a Governing Body and what do we do?
The general idea behind a Governing Body is about overseeing the success of the school and working in partnership with the Head and Teachers to agree priorities and monitor progress towards them. Pinchmill Primary School's Governing Body is there to provide constructive support and challenge to the Head and Teachers to enable them to do their job to the best of their ability.
Pinchmill Primary School's Governing Body works as a decision making body with corporate responsibility to work in the best interest of the school.
Pinchmill Primary Schools Governing Body is comprised of 9 Governors who all play differing roles. Our aim is to have a balanced group with diversity in gender, age, experience and skill sets to ensure our support can be as effective as possible to the Head and Teachers.
Who is represented on the Governing Body?
Being a school governor is a good way to be involved in the life and development of a school.
Who can become a Governor?
Almost anyone over 18 years of age can become a governor. There are no particular qualifications or requirements, other than willingness to give time to the role and a capacity for working with other people. Time commitments can vary but there are 6 Full Governing Body meetings throughout the year that all Governors attend. There are sub-committees focusing on Finance, Property and the Curriculum that also meet regularly throughout the year.
