Edith Moorhouse Primary School Reach For The Stars



The role of governors at our school


The governors at Edith Moorhouse play an active and positive role in the development and monitoring of the school aims and targets. We are here as a ‘critical friend’ to the head teacher and the school community by providing advice and support, but also to ask questions and challenge proposals and results. Governors make regular visits to the school.


Throughout the school year we monitor progress towards achievement of the school aims and targets, and we review the effectiveness of school policies. Through work in various committees, we are responsible for overseeing (amongst other things): Spending of the allocated school budget, recruitment of new staff, and ensuring the law is correctly followed in areas such as the curriculum, health and safety and safeguarding. 


Have your say


Governors are always keen to improve our engagement with all members of the Edith Moorhouse community, including parents. We encourage parents and staff to get involved in the development of our aims and policies and to provide feedback on ongoing achievement.


If you are interested in supporting the governing body at Edith Moorhouse, please get in touch - we would love to hear from you. We are an open and friendly group of people committed to improving outcomes for the children at our school.
