Governing Body

Welcome to our Governing Body

The Governors of Stopsley Community Primary School are very proud to take an active part in school life.  Our aim is to ensure that the children at our school are valued and encouraged to reach their full potential. Our learning community is built upon the shared belief that the development of each child must be at the HEART of everything we do.

The Governing Body works with the senior leaders in the strategic development of the school.  They support the Headteacher and staff as well as offering constructive challenge ensuring that the school achieves the very best it can for all pupils.

The four core functions of the Governors are:

  • Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction.

  • Holding executive leaders to account for the educational performance of the organisation and its pupils and the performance management of staff.

  • Overseeing the financial performance of the organisation and making sure its money is well spent.

  • Ensuring the voices of stakeholders are heard.

The Governing Body's focus is very the future of the school for the benefit of the pupils.

Many Governors have had children attend the school or still have children attending; we therefore can understand parental viewpoints. We are very approachable and more than happy to hear from you about any matters you may wish to discuss.
