Crosby School Governors

The Governing Body at Crosby has a strategic and supportive role, working in close partnership with the Headteacher to promote continuous improvement. Our aim is to provide a long-term direction, ensure accountability and be a critical friend to the school.

The three key roles of our Governing Body are:

  • Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction;
  • Holding the head teacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils, and the performance management of staff; and
  • Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent.

Our governing body comprises of 11 people elected or appointed to represent stakeholders in the school – parents, staff, the wider community and the local authority.  These people are:

Parent Governors Mrs K Dunn (Vice-Chair) and Mrs S Carswell, 1 Vacancy
Headteacher Mrs. H. Reid
Staff Governor Mrs. L. Smith
Co-opted Governors Miss J Harrison , Miss S. Pepper, Mr S Piper and Mrs. S. Shah (Chair) 1 Vacancy
Local Authority Governor 1 Vacancy

The Governing Body meets officially 6 times a year but Governors are also actively involved in many aspects of school life.

Our Governors are linked to different aspects of the school and meet the head, senior leadership team, staff and children to gain a comprehensive overview throughout the school year.

The Governing Body and individual Governors are expected to conduct our business in a professional manner, with the focus on the best outcomes for children at the heart of all that we do and to maintain and respect confidentiality at all times. We have adopted a Code of Conduct and operate within agreed Standing Orders for the Governing Body. Some of our work is conducted through our groups and committees which have specific terms of reference and delegated authority on behalf of the Governing Body.

Wherever possible minutes of these meetings will be published on the website and are available at the school office.

Governors can be contacted via the school office or the Chair can be emailed at sshah.crosby.northlinc@dbprimary.com or by post to:

Ms.  S. Shah
