Meet the Governors

BYFLEET PRIMARY SCHOOL

Welcome to the governing body webpage. Here you will be able to find out more about the role of the governors and how our governing body contributes to school life.

Remit of the Governing Body

The purpose of having a governing body is to:

  • Help the school to set high standards by planning for the school’s future and setting targets for school improvement
  • Keep the pressure up on school improvement
  • Be a critical friend to the school, offering support and advice
  • Help the school respond to the needs of parents and the community
  • Make the school accountable to the public for what it does
  • Work with the school on planning, developing policies and keeping the school under review
  • Exercise its responsibilities and powers in partnership with the headteacher and staff

The governing body reconstituted in March 2015 and consists of 6 Co-opted governors, 1 Headteacher, 1 Local Authority Governor, 5 Parent Governors and 1 Staff Governor. There are currently 3 Co-opted governor vacancies and 1 Staff Governor vacancy.
