Governors

School Governance at Hurst Drive Primary School

 

Hurst Drive Primary School has a Governing Body - a group of hardworking volunteers - who meet half-termly in the evening and visit the school regularly to play an important role in making the school the best it can be for its children, parents/carers and staff.  

 

The governors act as a 'critical friend' to the Headteacher and school leaders in an effort to ensure the school makes the right improvements, keeps its finances in good order and provides an excellent education for each and every child.  

 

At present, the 'Instrument of Government' states that the Governing Body of Hurst Drive Primary School should consist of the following members:

 

  • 2 parent governors
  • 1 local authority governor
  • 1 headteacher
  • 1 staff governor
  • 3 co-opted governors

 

Please find details below of those who form the Governing Body, including the names, responsibilities and terms of office for each governor.
