Bousfield Primary School


Governors play a vital role in ensuring the best possible education for every child by creating robust accountability for school leaders.

They have a strong focus on three core strategic functions
  • Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction
  • Holding the headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils, and the performance management of staff
  • Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent.

The full Governing Body meets every term. In addition, there are two committees, which meet in advance of the full governing body for more detailed discussions and to review policy documents. They are

  • Curriculum and Standards Committee
  • Finance and General Purposes Committee

The Governing Body is comprised of 13 members and the composition is as follows

  • One Ex Officio (Headteacher)
  • One staff member elected by the school staff
  • One appointed by the Local Authority
  • Four elected by parents of the school
  • Six Co-opted governors are appointed by the Governing Body according to skills
