Meet the Governors

 

 

 

 

The Governing Body exists to help the school provide the best possible education for its pupils. We are not involved in day-to-day management of the school – that is the responsibility of the head teacher – but we set the school aims and policies and monitor how well the school is run.

 

The GB was reconstituted in September 2014 and now consists of  three committees which cover the most vital areas where the governors are involved:

 

Strategic Leadership Group,

Teaching and Learning Committee 

and
Resources Committee

 

As far as possible, Governors are drawn from different backgrounds to get a good mix of skills. The Governing Body of Wylye Valley C of E V.A. Primary School comprises 2 Parent Governors (elected by the parents), 1 Local Authority Governor, 2 Staff Governors and 7 Foundation Governors (appointed by the Salisbury Diocesan Board of Education)
