Governors

The Governing Body decides matters of general policy and oversees the general running of the school.

School Governors contribute to the work of the governing body in ensuring high standards of achievement for all children and young people in the school by:

  • Setting the school’s vision, ethos and strategic direction;
  • Holding the headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils; and
  • Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent.

Governors have a four-year term of office and are actively involved in the life of Little Kingshill School. The Chair and Vice Chair(s) are appointed on a 1 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.
