Governors' Information

Hello from Curdridge Primary School Governing Body!


What does the Governing Body do?

Essentially we are here to ensure Curdridge Primary School is a great, safe place to learn and work. Whilst we don’t get involved in day to day operational decisions, we are responsible for the school’s vision, ethos and strategic direction, for holding the school leaders to account for the school’s educational performance and for overseeing the school’s financial performance, ensuring that its money is well spent. We also have various statutory duties such as Safeguarding, ensuring the curriculum is broad and balanced and ensuring compliance with various legislation such as the Equality Act 2010 and Health and Safety regulations. In order to carry out our role, amongst other things Governors visit the school regularly and meet as a board twice a term.


Interested in becoming a Governor?

The most important qualities for being a Governor are enthusiasm, commitment and an interest in education. You don’t need teaching experience but it is helpful if Governors can bring skills from other areas of life. Governors are volunteers and terms run for 4 years, although there is usually the option to stand for more than one term. There is a time commitment but it is a very rewarding experience.


We currently have a vacancy for a Parent Governor, with a further vacancy becoming available at the end of Summer Term 2024. If you are interested, please do get in touch with any of the Governors or contact the School Office to find out more.
