Governors and Trust Directors

Welcome to the Governors' section!

School Governing Bodies are responsible for working with the school to ensure that it delivers a good quality education. Together with the Head Teacher, who is responsible for day-to-day management, they set the school's aims and policies.

Governors have three main roles:

  • to provide strategic direction for the school
  • to monitor performance of the school and to provide challenge to the school leadership team
  • to ensure accountability

They also carry out a number of other important duties, which include:

  • Monitoring the progress and achievement of all pupils across the school
  • Determining how the school's budget is spent
  • The appointing and dismissing of staff
  • Hearing appeals and grievances
  • Forming policy on the school's curriculum and collective worship
  • Setting standards for pupils' behaviour and discipline
  • Making sure school buildings are welcoming and safe
  • Setting and monitoring the school's aims and policies
  • Monitoring the performance of the Head Teacher

Tollerton Primary School's Governing Body consists of 4 Trust Appointed Governors, 2 Parent Governors, 2 Staff Governors and the school's Head Teacher. Details can be seen below:
