We have a legal responsibility to:

  • ensure that the National Curriculum is followed
  • oversee the school’s budget
  • monitor the condition of the school buildings and grounds
  • ensure that Special Educational Needs are met

Hawkshead Esthwaite Primary School Instrument of Government states we require

1 Head Teacher

1 Staff Governor

1 Local Authority Governor

2 Parent Governors

The Governing Body has the power to delegate certain of its duties to appointed committees. The structure and membership of these committees is agreed by the Governing Body.

The committees are responsible for doing the majority of the leg work of the Governing Body.  Each committee is run by a Chair and The Head Teacher sits on each of the committees.
