Our Governors

– Striving for excellence –

Board of Governors…

All schools must have governors. The Board of Governors  is part of the management team and is responsible for making sure the school provides the best education for all of our children.

How does the Governing Board Work?

The governors employ a Clerk who attends all the meetings, takes minutes, distributes reports and documents and provides advice. The role of the clerk is vital and we are lucky enough to have a very efficient and competent one at Sutton Park.

The governors elect a Chair and Vice Chair who work together with the Head Teacher  the Deputy Head the Clerk and chairs of committees to guide the work of the governing board.
