Greenleaf Primary School Governing Body
The Governors at Greenleaf Primary School have an important role in ensuring that the school provides a positive educational experience for all in our school community. They are committed to ensuring that all of our children get the best possible start in life.
Governors at Greenleaf monitor the leadership of our school with regards to curriculum, standards and financial management, as well as the safeguarding of our pupils.
Governors support, but also challenge the Head Teacher and wider leadership team in ensuring that the School Development Plan is a robust, comprehensive action plan that is followed, reviewed and reflected upon. They ensure that decisions, whether they be financial or human resources related, are informed by a well-thought-out and carefully constructed planning process.

Hi everyone, I'm Kathleen and am a parent governor at Greenleaf. Â
I have two children at the school and became a governor as I want to support the work of the school to provide the best possible education and well-rounded experience to our children. Outside of my governor role I am a senior manager in a children's charity and would like to contribute my experience to the school and community, as well as putting forward a parent's perspective on the range of issues that governors are involved in.

Instrument of Governors
Governors are part of the largest volunteer workforce in the country; they play a key role in helping the school provide the best possible education for all its pupils.
The Instrument of Government sets out the arrangements for the constitution of all governing bodies of local authority maintained schools.
Our Instrument of Government states our governing body shall consist of:
- Head Teacher: 1
- Staff Governor: 1
- Parent Governors: 3
- LA Appointed Governors: 1
- Co-opted Governors: 9
Once appointed Governors serve a four-year term of office.
Governors visit the school regularly so that they kept are informed of all aspects of school life. Each Governor is also linked to a subject area a.
Every year Governors self-evaluate their skills and experiences which contribute to Greenleaf having an effective Governing Body. Where gaps are identified, governors consider whether any particular action (eg. training) needs to be put in place.
The Headteacher and Governing Body work in close partnership. The Headteacher discusses all the main aspects of school life with the governing body and expects the governing body to both challenge and support the school. Acting as a “critical friend”, the governing body offers support and constructive advice; governors question proposals and seek further information to enable them to make sound decisions.
TO CONTACT THE GOVERNING BODY
Please address all correspondence either to the Chair of Governors, or to a named governor, via the school office.
