Governing Body Key Information

The Governing Body's core strategic functions as expected by the DfE are:

  • Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction
  • Holding the head teacher 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.

We have an active group of Governors at Mickleover Primary. Governors assist with strategic planning and provide oversight of the school’s activities. We ensure that the school provides the best possible environment for learning, has challenging targets and is held to account for delivering them and that it is compliant with any statutory requirements.

Our governors are listed below. Some governors have specific responsibility as a link governor, establishing contact with the lead staff member for a given subject and developing governor knowledge in this area.
