The Governors work in partnership with the school. They provide a strategic view of where the school is heading, act as a critical friend to the school and hold the school to account for the educational standards it achieves and the quality of education it provides.


Governors at Loughborough C.E. Primary School fulfil these responsibilities through their regular meetings where they review school policies, discuss school strategy and monitor and evaluate school performance data. They are accountable to all the school’s stakeholders; pupils, parents, staff and the community, for the effectiveness of the school.


If you are interested in finding out more about this demanding but rewarding role, please contact the Chair of Governors via the school office.
