The Governing Body of Hurdsfield Primary School is committed to working in partnership with the head teacher and staff to provide the best possible education for our children.
The Governors of Hurdsfield Primary School consists of 12 members of the local and school community. It works closely with the Headteacher, Mr Cash (from September 2017), and the staff of the school to oversee the strategic direction and planning of the school. The Governing Board does this by offering support and constructive advice; being a ‘critical friend’ when and where needed. The Governing Board challenges, asks questions and seeks information to ensure that the best interests of the children at the school are being met.
All members of the Governing Board are volunteers. They are either elected by parents and staff, appointed by the Local Authority or co-opted from the local community. The Headteacher is a governor. The terms of office are 4 years and governors can choose to be re-elected to the Governing Body.
The Governing Body is split into four committees that scrutinise the work of the school. The committees are as follows:
Chaired by: Andrew Melville
Chaired by: Frank Vigon
Personnel (including Pay and Performance)
Chaired by: Steve Carter
Each committee meets at least once a term. The full Governing Body meets each term.
The Chair of Governors can call extra meetings if necessary.
