Local Governing Body

Welcome to Kelsall Local Governing Body's Homepage

The Governors of Kelsall Primary School have the responsibility for education of the children in our school. The Local Governing Body, whose membership includes the school Principal, provides strategic leadership to the school and takes key decisions in areas such as finance, staffing structure and appointments and premises as well as monitoring educational performance. It works in a non-executive manner, operational leadership of the school is provided by the senior leadership team.

Our members are drawn from parents, staff and the local community so that we bring a wide range of experiences and views to our debates. Although we are all volunteers we take our duties very seriously and consequently have a genuine impact upon the school and the education provided to Kelsall’s children. There are typically nine LGB meetings per year (which are open to members of the public to observe) and the part one minutes are available for inspection at school. 

Governors welcome enquiries from all sections of the community about membership. We always embrace people who are committed to the ethos of the school and who are willing to work with us to improve the quality of the leadership that we provide. Enthusiasm, commitment and a willingness to learn and contribute are the most important qualities. We can be contacted through the school.

Positive feedback is always welcome (so we can repeat successful things more often) but we also want to learn about things we can improve. We can readily be contacted through the school. If the matter is sensitive then a sealed envelope can be forwarded to the Chair, Vice Chair or via the clerk to the LGB.
