Governors

Welcome to the webpage for Kelsey Primary School’s Governors. 

The Governing Body is made up of willing and skilled volunteers who freely give their time and expertise to support the school and assist in its leadership and management.  Our focus is on setting and monitoring the strategic direction for the school and ensuring we have the resources to deliver an outstanding education for every pupil.  The Headteacher runs the school day to day, and the Governing Body appoints the Headteacher and supports her work. 

There are 12 Governors and we meet regularly throughout the year all together in a Full Governing Body meeting or in sub-committees where we focus on 2 key areas of the school’s management: Finance & Resources and Curriculum & Standards. Each Governor is a member of a sub-committee and is also the link for a key area in school.

We currently have a vacancy for 2 new Governors.  If you would like to know more, please contact the Acting Chair of Governors or the Headteacher for an informal, no obligation chat.

At Kelsey Primary School, Governors are part of the everyday fabric of the school with many volunteering to listen to pupils reading or getting actively involved in the PFA and general school life.  You’ll find a Governor at every school event, our photos are on display outside the school office and we can always be contacted via the school.
