Governor Information

Hurdsfield Primary School and Nursery

Governing Body (2017-2018)


The Governing Body of Hurdsfield Primary School and Nursery is committed to working in partnership with the Headteacher and staff to provide the best possible education for our children.


The Governors of Hurdsfield Primary School and Nursery consists of members of the local and school community. It works closely with the Headteacher, Mr Cash, 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.
