About Hollydale Primary School’s Governing Body

School Governors play a vital role in making sure that every child gets the best possible education. The Department for Education expects that, “In all types of schools, governing bodies have a strong focus on three core strategic functions:

a. Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction;
b. Holding the headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils, and the performance management of staff; and
c. Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent.”

Our governing board is made up of the following:

  • Headteacher
  • Parent governors
  • Co-opted teacher governor
  • Co-opted governors

We meet once every half term as a full governing body. Our Committees meet separately and report back to the Governing Board. They are:

  • School Improvement Oversight Board
  • Attainment and Learning
  • Resources
