Menston Primary School

Making our world a better place

Our Governors

The school’s Governing Body meet regularly to discuss the development of the school. The governors are either appointed by the LEA, parents of pupils, members of staff (including the Head Teacher) or members of the community.

Governors are required to produce a plan for the strategic development of the school.  This plan was drawn up by governors following consultation with staff and parents. A copy of the strategic plan is available here.

For the current year, the Full Governing Body will meet five times. A further five meetings will be held for the Finance and general Purposes sub-committee, who will oversee the budget, premises and resource allocation. A further three meetings will be held for the School Improvement, Curriculum and Standards sub-committee, who will oversee the quality of education.

The whole governing body meet regularly, where they discuss the recommendations of committee meetings and decide on school policy.

Every school year Governors gather the views of staff, pupils and parents. To do this they attend school events, go on learning walks with teachers to look at provision in different subjects, they use questionnaires to gather the views of different groups and they talk to children.
