Governor Activity

Welcome to the Governors' section.


Our Governors come from a range of backgrounds, and bring different areas of expertise to the school. Governors contribute to ensuring high standards of achievement for all children in the school.


On 5th May 2016, the Governing Body of the Churchill School reconstituted in line with the School Governance (Constitution) (England) Regulations 2012. There are up to 13 governors who sit on the school's Governing Body who are responsible for:


  • 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, including the Pupil Premium.


A Governor’s role is to support and challenge the senior staff to continue to improve the school. It is largely a thinking and questioning role and Governors are not there to manage the school or do the jobs of school staff. Governors fulfil their role by regularly attending Governing Body meetings, providing strategic guidance and by asking probing and challenging questions of leaders within the school. They also undertake visits, serve on relevant committees and oversee the Headteacher’s performance management.
