The Governing Body

As unpaid, voluntary public servants, School Governors are entrusted, in partnership with the Headteacher, with the responsibility for establishing and maintaining the aims, values and ethos of the school; deciding policies; supervising its management, and monitoring its performance, leaving the head to manage the school from day to day. The Governors also have responsibilities for finance and senior staffing. In everything they do, they must by law aim to promote high standards of educational achievement at the school. The governors work closely with our Local Education Authority and are accountable to them and to the parents, pupils and community served by the school.

At the Collaboration of East Harptree & Ubley Primary Schools, the governors'  responsibilities have involved them in 6 formal meetings of the full Governing Body in the past year, and several voluntary meetings with staff or the LightHouse Schools Partnership
