Governors

Welcome to our Governors’ section. 

Governors are a voluntary body of people who set the aims and objectives for the school. They set policies and targets for achieving those aims and objectives. The governors monitor and evaluate the progress the school is making and act as a “critical friend” to the school.

 

The instrument of governance states that the governing body of Butleigh Primary School shall consist of:

  • 2 parent elected governors
  • 1 LA governor
  • 1 headteacher
  • 1 staff governor
  • 5 co-opted governors
  • 2 foundation governors


We have also provided a Register of Governor Interests and an Annual Statement of Issues for your information.
