Whole School Parents with Pre-School children who wish to attend/other family members.

The governing body consists of volunteer members who represent a variety of interests.

Parent Governors are proposed and elected by the parents of pupils in the school. Foundation Governors are nominated by the Parochial Church Council for Yardley Gobion because our school is linked to the Church of England.

The governing body exists to oversee the management of the school. It works closely with the staff and the Education Authority (Northamptonshire County Council) to ensure the school meets the requirements of National Education Acts passed by Parliament. It is also responsible for interpreting that legislation in the best interests of the pupils.

The governing body meets regularly throughout the year and has a number of specialist committees that meet when required. Two main responsibilities are setting and monitoring the financial budget each year and taking a close interest in the development of the National Curriculum. Other important areas of decision relate to staff appointments, staff welfare, discipline, complaints and building maintenance. Governors attend courses on various aspects of education. They visit the school as often as possible and those who are able to, take an interest in a particular subject area and follow its delivery across the school. Terms of Reference for the Management Committee and Teaching & Learning Committee are available via the links provided in the sidebar of the page.

The task of a governor is not an easy one. Constantly changing requirements in education and external financial difficulties present a continuous challenge. Governors take on that task because they care about Yardley Gobion CE Primary School. They want to create the best environment for staff and pupils and thereby provide the best education possible. I am sure that you, whatever your interest will share that ambition.

Our Chairs of Governors can be contacted by email - Mrs Julie Hammond -  jhammondgov@yardleygobionschool.co.uk
