Welcome to the Governing Body

Here at Broughton Primary School, we are very proud to work with and be a part of such a creative and outward looking school. As members of the Governing Body we see the immense effort and hard work that goes into making our school so successful, and it is our role to support and challenge the school to do even better!
We thought you might want to know a little more about what we do and who we are. If you want to find out more or have ideas that you would like to share with us please get in touch by emailing us at  or writing to us at the school address.
What do we do?

The Governing Body, together with the Head Teacher, staff and Local Authority, is responsible for the school.

We must hold the school to account for the standards it achieves, ensuring that all the resources (including the school budget and staff) are properly used to meet the needs of all children and provide value for money.

The Governing Body appoints the Headteacher and delegates to the Headteacher the responsibility of the day to day running of the school. Individual governors have no power as such, and we cannot speak or act on behalf of the GB – any decisions are made by the Board as a whole.

At Broughton Primary School we have four meetings of the full governing body every year. Governors work together in smaller groups throughout the year, dealing with particular responsibilities through committees and sub-committees on behalf of the full governing body – membership is indicated in the individual governor details below. The committees usually meet once or twice a term, depending on their remit.
Who are we?
The Governing Body is made up of four groups who represent the 'stakeholders' in the school – staff, parents, the community and the Local Authority. At Broughton Primary School we have a diverse and challenging board of governors. We come from a wide range of backgrounds, and with that we hope we bring a wide reaching set of skills, experience and perspectives to the governing body.
