The Governing Body

Downsell Primary School Governing Body

At Downsell Primary School our Governing Body is made up of nine governors, including the Headteacher.  Governors are the strategic leaders of the school and have three key responsibilities:
  • To contribute to the strategic discussions at governing board meetings;
  • To hold the senior leaders to account by monitoring the school’s education and financial performance;
  • To ensure the school staff have the resources and support they require to do their jobs well.
In addition, governors may also be asked to serve on a panel such as an exclusion or HR appeal.

Our Governing Body currently meets once every six weeks, their meeting agendas are planned in advance on an annual basis to ensure that meetings are purposeful, focus on the school's development plans, review all statutory and good practice requirements in addition to any items that may need discussing throughout the year.
