Our Governors

A school can have between 9 and 20 governors who are collectively known as the governing body. The governing body works with the staff to develop the vision, values and ethos of our school. They support and challenge the school to continuously review, evaluate and develop its systems and provision to enable all pupils to achieve the very best education in a safe and secure environment and consequently acheive all they are capable of.

 

Sandwich Junior School Governing Body currently has 11 members, made up as follows:

  • 3 Parent Governors, who are elected by and from parents of children at the school
  • 1 Staff Governor, who is elected by the staff from among the teachers and non-teaching staff at the school
  • 1 Local Authority Governor, appointed by the Local Authority panel
  • 5 Co-Opted Governors, chosen by the rest of the governing body as a result of a skills audit
  • The Headteacher
  • The Deputy Headteacher - Associate Governor (no voting rights)

 

 

All Governors complete a Register of Business and Pecuniary Interests on appointment, and update it annually in Term 1 of each academic year.
