The Governing Body

School governors are people who want to make a positive contribution to children's education. Governors are one of the largest volunteer forces in the country and have an important part to play in raising school standards. The role of the governing board is absolutely key to the effectiveness of a school.

 

At Four Oaks Primary School, we have a very active and supportive governing body. All our Governors serve for a 4 year period and many join us for longer through re-election. A Headteacher is a permanent appointment to the Governing Body.

Each committee has a Terms of Reference document that describes the purpose, scope and authority of the committee. Our Terms of Reference for each of our committees is found below.

Many of our governors have provided a short pen portrait about why they became a governor and what they love about Four Oaks.
