Governors

Welcome to our governors' section. Should you wish to contact the Chair of Governors for any reason please make an appointment through the school office or email her directly pbutler@thornhillsch.net. 

 

In school reception there are copies of the most recent newsletter available as well as a comments and/or questions box. We encourage parents and carers to communicate regularly with us. Once a term our Parent Governors hold a Parent Governors forum. This usually falls within Family Learning Week. Details of dates are held with the school office. 

 

The Governors meet every half term as a Full Governing Body (FGB). Each of the Governors are in committees (Curriculum & Standards/Personnel & Finance) and these groups also meet once a half term. Some Governors have key responsibilities and/or links to specific subjects.

 

Governors serve an initial term of office of four years and are subject to re-appointment/re-election thereafter. 

 

The Governors are an essential part of the leadership & management of Thornhill Primary School. They also work together to be the best they can be!
