Churchfields Primary School

Welcome to the Governors Section

School governance is about ensuring high standards of achievement and wellbeing for all children in the school. The governing body:

  • Is responsible for the school’s strategic aims and objectives
  • Acts as a ‘critical friend’ to the headteacher, providing challenge and support as s/he works to achieve those aims and objectives
  • Ensures accountability

The Governor’s role is strategic rather than operational; the headteacher is responsible for the internal organisation, management and control of the school and the implementation of the strategic framework established by the governing body.

Churchfields Governing Body meets four times a year as a whole governing body and also in smaller sub committees at least once a term. Our sub committees are:

  • Resources – responsible for financial matters
  • Standards – monitors all aspects of progress and achievement
  • Community – ensures the safety and well being of pupils

If you wish to contact the governing body you can do so via Irene Morley, Clerk to Governors via the school office.
