Governors are at the heart of how a school operates.  It is important they get things right.  How they do their job affects the interests of pupils, staff morale and how the school is seen by parents and others in the community. 

Governors at Wilby CofE VA Primary School work as a team and are responsible for making sure the school provides a good quality education.  Raising educational standards in school is a key priority and we believe that this has the greatest opportunity for succes when there are high expectations of what pupils can achieve. 

The Governing Body:

  • is accountable for the performance of the school to parents and the wider community
  • plans the school's future direction
  • selects the head teacher
  • makes decisions on the school's budget and staffing
  • makes sure the national curriculum is taught
  • decides how the school can encourage pupil's spiritual, moral and social development
  • makes sure the school provides for all its pupils, including those with special needs

Governors also promote effective ways of teaching and learning when setting the school aims and policies.  They do this together with the head teacher, who is responsible for the day to day management of the school. Our school governing body includes governors who are:

  • Parents elected by other parents at the school
  • Staff elected by Head, teachers and support staff at the school. The head teacher is entitled to be a staff governor without an election
  • Persons appointed by Northamptonshire County Council as the local education authority. There are upto four of these 'LEA' governors
  • Foundation governors, appointed by the church

Foundation governors form the majority on the governing body of the school, which is a Church of England
