Who are we?

At Castle Hill School there are 5 Local Governing Body governors and the Principal (ex.officio).

The Local Governing Body at Castle Hill school is made up of all different ‘types’ of local governors:

Parent governors – elected from parents of registered pupils at the school.
Kate Shepherd
Tracey Wheldon

 Community governors – appointed by members of the Local Governing Body who are not themselves co-opted, they are intended to be representatives of the local community and may add particular kinds of expertise.
Dughall McCormick
Joan Haines

 Staff governors – people who work in school and are elected by their colleagues. There are two different types, teaching and non-teaching staff governors.
Antony Morris
Jayne Askew

• Principal – ex officio member.

What we do:

The governors at Castle Hill School meet at least twice every term to discuss the running of the school. This would include looking at:

• The school’s budget and various policies e.g. behaviour, sex and relationship education.
• Performance management.
• The overall ethos and direction of the school.
• Long-term planning.
• Target setting for pupils.
• Staffing structures.

The Local Governing Body  play both a strategic and operational role, meaning that they focus on the underlying issues of school management and practical active topics. They are involved in reviewing exclusions and dealing with any cases of staff appeals.

The governors also focus on improvement and achievement and they play an important role in accountability. Not only is the Principal accountable to the Local Governing Body, but the Local Governing Body in turn is accountable to parents/carers, the Board of Directors and the Members and ultimately the Department For Education.
