Governor information

Welcome to Holystone Primary School Governor's section.  Here you will find information about our Governors and their roles and responsibilites

There are different kinds of governors:

  • Co-opted Governor - appointed by the Governing Body based on their skills and experience to support and advance the school
  • Parent Governor - elected by parents of registered pupils on the school roll
  • Local Authority Governor - nominated by the Outside Bodies Committee and appointed by the Governing Body
  • Staff Governor - elected by the teachers and support staff in individual schools

 

Our Governing body comprises:

 

  • Headteacher
  • 5 Co-opted Governors
  • 6 Parent Governors
  • 2 Staff Governors
  • 1 Local Authority Governor

 

Governing bodies have a strategic role in raising standards. They are key to the effectiveness of a school.

The Headteacher is responsible for the day to day management of the school, but the governing body has three core functions:

  • clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction
  • hold the head teacher to account for the educational performance of the school, pupils and staff
  • make sure the school's finances are in order and money is well spent
