Governors

School Governance at Hurst Drive Primary School

 

The Governing Body of Hurst Drive Primary School meets termly and is responsible for setting the strategic framework of the school and monitoring its implementation. It acts as a 'critical friend' by holding the headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils. The Governing Body also oversees the finances of the school, making sure money is well spent. 

 

During the school's most recent Ofsted inspection, the inspectors recognised the key role that governors played in improving the school to secure its 'Good' judgement - including challenging senior leaders to bring about much-needed improvements to teaching evidenced by the fact that children leaving key stage 2 now make above average progress.  The Governing Body believe in the school's motto 'Success for All' and so will continue to work alongside senior leaders to ensure best possible outcomes for all pupils.    

 

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

 

  • 4 parent governors
  • 1 local authority governor
  • 1 staff governor
  • 1 headteacher
  • 6 co-opted governors

 

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