The Governing Body of Crook Log Primary wishes you a warm welcome. We hope that you find the following informative and interesting. It is our opportunity to give you some information about the governing body of our school.

The Governing Body is a team drawn from staff, parents, and members of the community. There are four categories of governors that form our governing body –

  1. LA Governors are appointed by the Local Authority

  2. Co-opted Governors are appointed by the governing body to represent the interests of the local community

  3. Parent Governors are elected by the parents of the pupils in the school and should have a child at the school at the time of election

  4. Staff Governors are elected from the teaching and support staff within the school. One place must be taken by the Head Teacher.

    Under our current Constitution we have 1 LA Governor, 4 Parent Governors, 2 staff Governors (one of whom is the Head Teacher) and 5 Co-opted Governors. 

Governors are elected to serve, on a voluntary basis, for a period of four years after which they can be either re-elected, re-appointed or stand down. The Head Teacher remains on the Governing Body and does not have to be re-elected. Each governor brings particular skills and plays their own part in the strategic decisions made. All of the governors have chosen to work with the Head Teacher and staff in helping the school to continue to develop and move forward. Governors help to achieve this by:

  • Attending full governors’ meetings and various committee meetings during each term.

  • Visiting the school whilst it is at work, attending school productions, sports days and various celebrations during the school year

  • Attending governor training sessions on various educational issues, which are organised by the Local Authority or the school to help us in our role

  • Offering support to the head teacher and staff when needed

  • Taking a special interest in a class, phase or aspect of school life.

  • Asking challenging questions and monitoring impact which help to develop the vision and strategic direction of the school and ensure that the school is effective in helping children learn and make progress.
