The governing body is made up of parent, staff and Local Authority (LA) representatives. Along with their statutory responsibilities the governing body represent a 'critical friend' to the school management and monitor closely all aspects of the school.

Governors meet once per term to receive a head teacher’s report and consider general issues relating to the school. In addition to the full governing body, the school has two sub-committees of governors which meet once per term, each monitoring specific aspects of school management:

  • Standards and Effectiveness
  • Resources - encompassing Finance, Personnel and Premises

Most of the detailed work involved in school governance takes place in these smaller committees. Governors make frequent visits into school to work with both children and staff and their good work is reflected in the excellent relationships which result. Our Chair of governors is Michelle Attmere who can be contacted via the school office (01422  352856).

If you are interested in the work of the governors please feel free to contact our Chair. From time to time there are vacancies for parent governors, so if you have a child here at Lee Mount and feel you might be interested in becoming a governor, keep an eye out for news of vacancies in the school newsletter.
