Our Local Governing Body

Governors - Roles and Responsibilities

The Local Governing Body, in conjunction with the Head of School, is responsible for the strategic planning within the school, agreeing policy and procedures with a view to promoting high standards of educational achievement and pastoral care.

Here at Penketh, we are lucky to have a committed board of Governors who have a wide range of skills, knowledge and experience; with each governor bringing something vital to the team. With this experience our responsibility is to set the goals and strategy for the school. Specific duties include setting staffing levels, agreeing the school budget, ensuring that a broad and balanced curriculum is delivered as well as monitoring health and safety of pupils, staff and visitors together with the management of the school premises.

The Local Governing Body is made up of parent governors, elected by the parents of pupils at the school, staff governors including the Head of School and co-opted Governors. The team is made up of a variety of people from different backgrounds but who all share the same passionate belief that Penketh Primary should be a happy, successful, school where every child matters.

Governors at Penketh Primary School meet each term to discuss all issues, there are no discrete committees. 

Minutes from Penketh Local Governing Body meetings are available upon request through the school.
