The Chairperson of Culverstone Green Primary School’s local governing body is Mrs Gail Cox (who can be contacted via the school office). The local governing body is a committee of The Pathway Academy Trust’s Board and includes two parent governors, the Head Teacher / Head of School, and one staff governor. The minimum number of local governors is five up to a maximum of ten governors. Governors usually serve a four-year term on the governing body. The local governing body is responsible for school issues: data and standards; progress and attainment; holding the leadership to account; SEND and inclusion; Pupil Premium. Governors minutes are available upon request.
Culverstone Green Primary School, part of The Pathway Academy Trust, is looking for someone to join the Local Governing Body (LGB). Governors are appointed for a period of four years, though they may step down at any time.
Together with the Head Teacher, the LGB focuses on monitoring and improving educational standards within the school.
Currently the LGB meets four times a year, for a full day, on a midweek school day to carry out monitoring and attend LGB meetings. In addition, individual governors will usually arrange a few additional meetings during the year to meet with individual members of staff or groups of pupils.
No qualifications are required but in order to support governors in their work, The Pathway Academy Trust provides training for all governors at no charge to the individual.
Being a governor is very rewarding as you play a key role in ensuring the best outcomes for the children in the school; as an added bonus it can also significantly enhance your CV!
