Meet the Governors

Meet the Governors

There are 13 members of the governing body at Carr Head, all of whom give their time freely for the good of the school and the children. The full governing body meets once each term and the smaller committees feedback to the full governing body. The role of the governing body is to provide support and challenge for the headteacher and to hold the headteacher to account. The focus of the
main committees are standards, resources/ finance and health and safety/buildings. Individual governors may be tasked with monitoring specific curriculum areas and the impact on learning within these areas. From January 2015 each class will be linked to an identified governor. These governors may attend class assemblies, be available to meet parents at parents’ evenings or accompany the children on class trips.

Chair of Governors: Mrs A Spencer
Deputy Chair of Governors:  Mrs Esther Ward 

Full list of Governors
All governors are appointed for a term of office of 4 years.

All governors are appointed by the governing body unless they are elected
by a parental ballot which happens when there are more candidates than vacancies.
