Governing Body

All schools are managed by a Governing Body, which works closely with the Headteacher and senior staff to run the school in line with DfE and Local Authority guidelines.

The Edgbarrow Governing Body consists of two parent governors, one staff governor, one headteacher and sixteen co-opted governors. They are all volunteers who give their time and expertise free of charge to ensure that the school is run well, within budget and putting the needs and well-being of pupils and staff at the forefront.

As with any large organisation, the managers, in our case, the Governors, work on a number of committees which cover various aspects of the school's organisation. These include Curriculum, Buildings and Grounds, Staffing, Pastoral, Finance and Effective Governance.

The Governing board has the following core strategic functions.

   Establishing the strategic direction, by:

  • Setting the vision, values, and objectives for the school
  • Agreeing on the school improvement strategy with priorities and targets
  • Meeting statutory duties

If you would like to find out more about the role of the Governors or if you wish to contact the Governors regarding a particular matter, please feel free to contact Celeste Moruzzi the Clerk to the Governing Body, via the school office. She will be able to direct your enquiry to the appropriate Governor or committee. All our Governors are very approachable.  If you would like to become a Governor of our school please select this link.
