Governors

The Governing Body of Thackley Primary School is made up of elected Parent Governors, Local Authority Governors and Staff Governors, including the Headteacher. Governors are appointed on a four year basis.
 
The role of the Governing Body is to provide support and expertise to the school in helping it to develop and to meet its targets. The Governing Body helps to monitor the standards in school by acting as a critical friend and ensuring the statutory duties of a school are undertaken.

We are very fortunate at Thackley to have an active and committed Governing Body, which brings additional skills and expertise, continually provides support and contributes to the fantastic progress in school.
 

The three core strategic functions of Thackley Primary School Governing Body are:
1. Ensuring the clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction of the school.
2. Supportively holding the Head Teacher to account for the educational performance of the school and it’s pupils.
3. Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure that it’s money is well spent.

 

The school’s Governors are all volunteers with a varied scholastic and work background whose common interest is in ensuring Thackley Primary School  remains the excellent learning environment that it is, and that it continues to improve.

Vacancies arise for new Governors from time to time. If you are interested in becoming a governor please speak to the head teacher or the Chair of Governors.
