The Governing Body

THE GOVERNING BODY

The Governing Body of Primrose Hill School consists of 13 people (plus observers). All have been appointed in accordance with the relevant Acts of Parliament.

The Governing Body are like a board of directors. They work in partnership with the Headteacher to make decisions about how the school is run in order to improve the quality of education and ensure pupil progress.

Governors are responsible for:

setting school improvement targets and ensuring that the National Curriculum is taught
deciding how the school budget should be spent
ensuring that the buildings and furnishings are kept in good order
interviewing and selecting teaching staff
Primrose Hill Governors meet several times during each term as Committees to discuss matters relating to the Buildings and Finance, Staffing, Marketing and the Curriculum. The full Governing Body meets as least once a term to ratify decisions, review progress and to discuss the Headteacher’s report, which covers all aspects of the school’s activities.

Governors endeavour to visit the school regularly to discuss matters with staff and parents and to meet the children. They can be contacted at any time.
