Thorney Close Primary School

"Where Learning Blossoms..."


Governing bodies are responsible for working with the school to ensure that it delivers a good quality education. Together with the Headteacher, who is responsible for day-to-day management, the governors set the school’s aims and policies.

Key Roles of the Governors

  • To ensure clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction

  • To ensure accountability for the educational performance of the school and its pupils, and the performance management of staff

  • To oversee the financial performance of the school and ensure value for money

  • To support and challenge and undertake the role of ‘critical friend’

Please see the Department for Education Governors' Handbook for a detailed description of role of the Governing Body.

The Governing body meets six times a year (twice a term)  as a whole body.

The Governing Board of Thorney Close Primary School adopted a Code of Conduct on 21st October 2021.
