Birchfield Community Primary School



The Governors maintain a general oversight of matters such as school premises, finance, the curriculum, teaching and non-teaching staff, and the general conduct of the school.

Full Governor Meetings take place twice per term and you could also sit on various committees if you wish.

The role of a School Governor is, put simply, to set the strategic direction of the school with the Headteacher. In recent years Governors have worked closely with the Senior Leadership Team on the Ofsted agenda of raising standards, of attainment as well as recruitment of staff, financial management.  A very wide and far reaching brief!

We are always looking for enthusiastic members of the community to contribute to how the school is shaped into the future. If this is of interest to you, we would love to hear from you, or click below to go to the recruitment pack.

 You can contact the Governors via the Clerk at clerk@birchfieldprimaryschool.co.uk
