The governing body has a wide range of duties and responsibilities to support and manage the school.
In September 2018, governors decided to re-constitute the membership of the governing body. The purpose of this change was to allow governors to focus more clearly on developing the strategic direction of the school. The new structure for the governing body came into effect from 1st November 2018.
|Parent governors (1 vacancy)||1|
|LA appointed governors||1|
All governors serve a term of 4 years with the exception of the Headteacher. In addition to the changes to membership, the pattern of meetings has been changed. The Full Governing Body and Curriculum sub committee meet once a term. In April of this year (2019) a Resources sub committee was formed. This sub committee will also meet termly. Each governor has a particular role and responsibility and conducts monitoring activities in relation to this over the course of the academic year. They report back to the full Board each term at the formal meeting.
Parents can contact the governing body by writing to:
Chair of governors, c/o Newbury Park Primary School.
Copies of approved minutes of Governing Body meetings are available on request from the school office.
Register of Interests
At the start of each academic year, all Governors must sign a register of business/pecuniary interests disclosing any relevant business interests and details of any other educational establishments they govern. They must also set out any relationships between governors and members of school staff including spouses, partners and relatives.
