The role of the Governing Body is to provide strategic management and to act as a "critical friend", supporting the work of the headteacher and other staff.


School Governors support the school by:


  • Setting the school’s vision, ethos and strategic direction.
  • Holding the Head Teacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils.
  • Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent.
  • Ensuring the site and buildings are compliant with health and safety regulations.


Governors have a four-year term of office and are actively involved in the life of Little Kingshill Combined School. The Chair and Vice Chair are appointed on a one year term.


Minutes of Governors’ Meetings are available for parents to view within the school and there are formal and informal opportunities for meeting governors at various events during the year.


The Governing Body is made up as follows:

The Whole Governing Body meets once a term and is supported by a number of committees that typically meet termly.


Our Governors have no relevant business interests at the school and no relationships with school staff.


Being a School Governor is an incredibly rewarding way of making a difference to the school. If you are interested in becoming a School Governor, please contact Frances Rawle at
