Our Local Governing Body

Chair of Governors - Mrs Katie Hinds

Vice Chair - Mrs Laura Watson

Here at Penketh Primary School, we are fortunate to work with a committed, enthusiastic and caring Local Governing Body who fully support our school. Together, we aim to serve the school and our community to ensure a fantastic start and education for all. 

Each individual governor is a member of a governing board, which is established in law as a corporate body. Individual governors may not act independently of the rest of the governing board; decisions are the joint responsibility of the governing board.  The role of the governing board is a strategic one, its key functions are to:

  • set the aims and objectives for the school
  • set the policies for achieving those aims and objectives
  • set the targets for achieving those aims and objectives
  • monitor and evaluate the progress the school is making towards achievement of its aims and objectives
  • be a source of challenge and support to the headteacher (a critical friend).

Governors at Penketh meet to discuss all issues, there are no discrete committees. Governors meet twice a term as a full governing body to discuss standards and resources.
