Governors

Welcome to Northleaze Primary School Governors' page

Local Governing Body

What Does the Governing Body Do?

As part of the Lighthouse Schools Partnership (LSP), the Governing Body's remit is to:

  • Oversee the running of the school within the powers delegated to it by the LSP Board of Trustees, as laid out in the LSP Scheme of Delegation
  • Ensure clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction for the school, in alignment with the Trust vision and strategic objectives
  • Hold the school leaders to account for the educational performance of the school and our pupils, and the performance management of staff
  • Oversee the financial performance of the school, making sure its funding is well spent
  • Draw any significant recommendations and matters of concern to the attention of the LSP Board of Trustees

Our Local Governing Body (LGB) is supported by a Finance Committee, a Foundation Governors Committee and a Pay Committee.

Appointment of Governors

Our governors are drawn from parents, the church and wider community, and school staff, and are appointed for a four year term of office.

  • Parent governors (2) are elected by the school's parents and carers
  • Foundation governors (3) are appointed by the Board of Education of the Diocese of Bath & Wells, on the recommendation of the LGB
  • Co-opted governors (5) are appointed by the LSP Board of Trustees, on the recommendation of the LGB
  • Staff governors (1) are elected by school staff

Information About Governors

The DfE and LSP require schools to publish specific information about its governors, including those who served during the previous school year.  The list below, therefore, includes our current governors, and those who resigned, or who completed their appointment, during the 2019/20 school year.  Governors undertake many duties in support of our school's success; their meeting attendance rates represent only a small part of this.
