How Our School Governing Bodies Is Made Up

We are a group of volunteers from a range of backgrounds within the local community who are passionate about children’s education and who want to make a real difference to the school. Our objective is to provide a strategic view, which means deciding, in partnership with the school’s Senior Leadership Team, what the school needs to achieve and agreeing the framework for getting there. We do this by offering advice and support to the Headteacher to ensure that the school continues to raise its standards of achievement, delivers the school’s priorities and secures value for money. See our 'Who's Who' page for more details.

School governing bodies are a combination of appointed, elected and co-opted governors. All governing bodies of maintained schools are required to be constituted under the School Governance (Constitution)
(England) Regulations 2012 by 1st September 2015. Our school governing body is made up of:-

4 Parents

1 person appointed by the LEA
1 Member of staff

2 Co-opted Governors
1 Head (unless he or she chooses not to be a governor)

Information about the work of the governing body and how to become a governor is available at the school.

The Clerk to Governors is Mrs Sue Pottinger

The school office holds an up-to-date register of governor interests in the school office and declarations of interest are updated as part of all meeting minutes.

The Governing Body of Faldingworth Community Primary School is the sole body with no sub-committees, unless required by exceptional circumstance. The composition is as follows:
