Our Governors

Chair's Welcome

Holy Trinity C.E. (VA) Primary School Governing Body Details

Governors make an extremely valid contribution to the school’s strategic direction. They know our school very well. Governors receive regular reports from the Headteacher and various committees. Our pro-active, confident Governors undertake their own information gathering seriously and professionally (eg Health and Safety walks, Learning walks, curriculum working party meetings, visits to classrooms, visits to assemblies), charging the school with responding to any issues raised. Through its committees, the Governing Body scrutinises the work of the staff and pupils and asks challenging questions of the Senior Leadership Team and teachers. All Subject Leaders submit EOY reports to Governors so that they can measure more effectively how well the school is doing.
