Courthouse Green Local Governing Body

Our 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. 

Pupil Outcomes Leadership Team

Personal Development and Wellbeing Leadership Team
