At Barrowby Church of England Primary School, our Governing Body meets regularly throughout  the school  year either in full or in part, as:
  • the  Full  Governing Body;
  • the Curriculum & Standards Committee; and
  • the Finance, Resources & Personnel Committee.  


Please use the links below to learn a little bit more about these groups.

To learn more about the role of Governors and how we structure Governance at our school, please refer to the Schedule of Governance:
Main Duties and Responsibilities of School Governors.

School Governors come from a wide range of backgrounds. They are not expected to be experts in educational matters, as these are the responsibility of the headteacher and the teaching staff of the school.


The role of the School Governor and the Governing Body is to take a strategic overview of the issues relating to the school and to set a broad framework within which the headteacher can operate.


The work of the Governor is concerned with the general oversight of the conduct of the school, with the Headteacher responsible for the internal organisation and leadership and  management.


The School Governor is expected to:

  • work as a member of the Governing Body for the best  interests of the school;
  • attend the regular meetings and special meetings of the Governing Body;
  • serve on committees which deal with the Governing Body's legal obligations;
  • become familiar with general educational issues and developments;
  • take an interest in school activities;
  • promote the school within the local community; and
  • be able to commit time to the duties and responsibilities of a Governor.


 From time to time, opportunities to stand as Parent Governors will be advertised to you. 

 All correspondence for the Governors should be addressed to:


The Clerk to the Governors,
