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. 

 

We encourage parents and carers to communicate regularly with us. Once a term our Parent Governors hold a Parent Governors forum. Details of dates are held with the school office and you will hear about this via the newsletter. Governors send an Annual Report to parents in September  and at least one other newsletter during the academic year.

 

The Governors meet every half term as a Local Governing Body (LGB). 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. As of 1 November 2017 the school became an academy under HAMWIC Education Trust and as a result the Governing Body reconstituted. 

 

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!
