Governing Body Members, Categories and Responsibilities


Cowling Community Primary School is fortunate in having a dedicated and enthusiastic governing body. The Headteacher is responsible for the internal organisation and day to day management of the school, overall responsibility rests with the Governing Body. This includes assisting with the appointment of staff, having oversight of the curriculum and ensuring the premises and finances of the school are efficiently and effectively used.  

The Governing Body, as a whole, meets at least six times throughout the year.

All Governors are linked to aspects of our current School Improvement Plan, which they monitor through visits to school and discussion with staff.

Clerk to Governors: Paul Baxter
