Governor Information and Duties

The Governing Body of Waterloo Primary School

Welcome to the Governor Section - We are very proud to be Governors of Waterloo Primary School.  

 

The Governors play a crucial role in the life and work of our school. Governors make decisions about many aspects of the school, including the curriculum, staffing and finance.  

The Governing Body is made up of parent governors, elected by the parents of pupils at the school, staff governors including the Headteacher, Local Authority appointed Governors and Community Governors.   

 

The Governing Body has 3 core functions: 

  1. Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction
  2. Holding executive leaders to account for the educational performance of the organisation and its pupils, and the effective and efficient performance management of staff
  3. Overseeing the financial performance of the organisation and making sure its money is well spent 

 

Our team is made up of a variety of people from different backgrounds but who all share the same passionate belief that Waterloo Primary School should be a happy and successful school where every child is given the opportunity to reach their full potential, to know their place in the world and develop the necessary knowledge and skills to contribute successfully to the modern world.
