Governors

The Governors of  Pinehurst Primary School  have the responsibility for education of the children in our school. The Local Governing Body, whose membership includes the Headteacher, provides strategic leadership to the school and takes key decisions in areas such as finance, staffing structure and appointments, and premises as well as monitoring educational performance. 

Our members are drawn from parents, staff and the local community so that we bring a wide range of experiences and views to our debates. Although we are all volunteers we take our duties very seriously and consequently have a genuine impact upon the school and the education provided to Pinehurst’s children. There are typically six Full Governing Body meetings per year. There are additional meetings to these and members regularly attend training events.

Governors welcome enquiries from all sections of the community about membership. We always embrace people who are committed to the ethos of the school and who are willing to work with us to improve the quality of the leadership that we provide. Enthusiasm, commitment and a willingness to learn and contribute are the most important qualities. We can be contacted through the school.

Positive feedback is always welcome (so we can repeat successful things more often) but we also want to learn about things we can improve. We can readily be contacted through the school. If the matter is sensitive then a sealed envelope can be forwarded to the Governing Body via Mrs Stanley, Finance Officer at the School.
