Our governors

The Headteacher manages the school and is also a school governor. She is responsible to the Governing Body, which is in turn responsible to the Local Education Authority (Cheshire East).

It is the duty of the Governors to:
  • oversee the general conduct of the school
  • monitor the effective delivery of a sound education based on the National Curriculum
  • in consultation with the Headteacher, manage the budget, appoint teaching and non-teaching staff and ensure a continuing high standard of provision with regard to buildings, grounds, resources and equipment
  • ensure high standards of safety within the school and promote good relations with the local community
The Governors identify very closely with the school and work in close partnership with staff and parents. They voluntarily undertake this demanding role because of their interest and desire to contribute to the continuing success of Lindow School. 

The Governing Body operates as a whole body meeting once every half term and through three committees that meet at least once per term:

    1. Finance & Resources
    2. Personal Development, Behaviour & Welfare
    3. Curriculum & Achievement

Our Governing Body follows a Code of Conduct, details can be found here.

The terms of reference of the Governing Body and these committees can be found here.

The Governing Body is represented at Parents' Evenings and may organise informal meetings at which parents can discuss issues and concerns.
