The Governing Body
The Governing Body is composed of up to 12 representatives from the Church, local community, school and parents. As a critical friend, the Governing Body offers support, constructive advice, a sounding board for ideas, a second opinion on proposals and help where needed. Governors are responsible for establishing the aims and policies of the school, setting and implementing the school budget, and ensuring that the curriculum is taught. They set targets for the school and ensure the implementation of these targets. They visit the school regularly and act as a link between parents, the Church, and the school.
All governors welcome feedback and suggestions from Parents, Carers and other stakeholders. Any correspondence received will be promptly dealt with at the next Governing Body meeting and the outcome reported back to respective parents.
Elmley Castle CE First School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults. We expect all staff, Governors and volunteers to share in this commitment. As such, we insist all Governors have a satisfactory DBS Enhanced Disclosure.
All Governors can be contacted by letter via the school office.
