Courthouse Green Local Governing Body
Many schools in England have a Governing Body which is responsible for overseeing many of the strategic decisions of the school. A key role is to act as a ‘critical friend’; to support, to challenge, to ask questions and ultimately to represent the school community.
The Local Governing Body works in close partnership with the Headteacher, the Board of the Multi Academy Trust and the school staff. Whilst the Headteacher is, of course, responsible for the day to day running of the school the local governors are involved with such things as staffing, curriculum, school buildings, health and safety and safeguarding. It ensures the school functions well and maintains the required range of academic and social objectives and enables the local governors to report to the Trust Board.
The standard term of office for a Local Governor is four years. The Chair and Vice-chair are elected annually at the first meeting of the academic year. Our Chair of Governors is LJ Winterburn who can be contacted via the school office.
The full Local Governing Body meets once per year. Much of the work is done by committees which meet at least every term (three times in the year) and more often where required. At Courthouse Green Primary School we have the following committees.

Richard CosbyCo-opted Governor
I currently teach within a broad spectrum primary school and have previously worked in both mainstream and SEND educational settings, working and supporting pupils from KS1 to KS5 as well as in FE settings. I am passionate that all children and young adults have the best opportunities in life, experiencing exciting opportunities in education. I am looking forward to supporting Courthouse Green as part of their governing body and working with colleagues and children to develop their aspirations through their time in school. I use the THRIVE Approach in my teaching, and I am a trained Mental Helth First Aider (Adult) recognising the importance of staff wellbeing and it's impact on the success of educational settings.
In previous roles i have worked as a Sculptor and in the construction industry. I am a firm advocate for the Arts, I believe it is one of the most versatile and inclusive areas of the curriculum. The Creative Arts facilitate cross curricular learning in schools and can be used to accelerate learning and understanding across many areas.
I have two children, one in primary education, one at secondary school. I enjoy reading, going to walks, DIY, travelling to new places and visiting galleries and museums. I enjoy making art and furniture and find this a very good way to unwind and relax.
