Governors Information

All schools have a Governing Body, which is responsible for overseeing many of the strategic decisions of the school. They work in close partnership with the Headteacher, staff and the Local Authority. They bring a range of interests, knowledge and skills to the school and they all work in a voluntary capacity. Governors give their service voluntarily and no formal qualifications are necessary although there are eligibility criteria.  

Whilst the Headteacher is responsible for the day to day running of the school, the governors are frequently involved with such things as: ensuring pupil premium funding is allocated effectively to close the gaps leading to accelerated progress and raised attainment; staffing; curriculum; health and safety; safeguarding; school buildings and finance. It ensures the school functions well and maintains the proper range of academic and social objectives. The Governing Body works as a team with shared responsibilities.

MOORFIELD PRIMARY SCHOOL GOVERNING BODY – REGISTER OF BUSINESS INTERESTS

We were unable to sign the Register of Business Interests at either the Autumn Term meeting or the Spring Term meeting due to COVID regulations.  Both meetings were held online.
