Trotts Hill Primary School and Nursery
The purpose of the Governing Body is to provide strategic leadership and accountability in schools. It has three key functions:
Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent.
Holding the headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils.
Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos, and strategic direction.
Our Governing Body meets at least once a term for a Full Governing Body meeting and once a year for a Finance meeting.
Chair – Helen Altringham
Vice Chair – Emma Richardson
In addition, Governors are members of either the Teaching and Learning committee or the Resources committee.
These committees also meet at least once a term.
Teaching and Learning Committee – Chair Emma Richardson

Governors are linked to faculties in the school and regularly meet with individual staff members to discuss progress and development in the areas. Reports are presented to the Full Governing Body,
