The governors at Trinity CE Primary School come from a wide range of backgrounds. Some governors are from the school staff, some are parents, some are appointed by the Local Authority and others are representatives from our local community.

The governors work together as a group bringing their own particular experience to support the school and to ensure that the children are getting the best possible education.

We have to make important decisions about issues such as the priorities for each year, the way the curriculum is delivered and the budget.

The governing body has four main committees.

  • HR Committee.

  • Pupil Performance and Communications Committee.

  • Finance Committee.

  • Site and Premises Committee.

Full Governing Body meetings happen 3 times a year.  An extra meeting is also called when Governors approve the school’s budget. Extra meetings are also called when there is a need to do so. There is tight motioning of monthly expenditure when more meetings may be called if the need arises.

The purpose of having a governing body is to

    • help the school to set high standards by planning for the school’s future and setting targets for school improvement

    • keep the pressure up on school improvement

    • be a critical friend to the school, offering support and advicehelp the school respond to the needs of parents and the community

    • make the school accountable to the public for what it does

    • work with the school on planning, developing policies and keeping the school under review

    • exercise its responsibilities and powers in partnership with the headteacher and staff

    • not intervene in the day-to-day management of the school unless there are weaknesses in the school, when it then has a duty to take action
