Welcome to the Governing Body.

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 Head Teacher and delegates to  her responsibility for 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 Governing Body – any decisions are made by the body as a whole.

At Scunthorpe Church  of England Primary (VC)  we have three 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 Scunthorpe Church  of England VC Primary School we have a diverse and challenging board of governors. Governors 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.
