We have a committed and dedicated team of Governors at Surrey Street Primary. The Governing Body strives to support and challenge the school’s leadership team, ensuring the best possible outcomes for our children.
As governors we make collective decisions as part of the Governing Body. Our main purpose is to help raise the educational standards and performance by supporting the work of the Headteacher and school staff. We ensure that the school runs effectively, that quality teaching and learning is happening across the school and that the budget is spent wisely.

Are you interested in being a school Governor?
The role of a school Governor is a demanding one but very rewarding and is a good way to give something back to your local community.
You don't have to have children at the school to be a Governor, but you do have to be over 18. No specific qualifications are required, but there are certain expectations. What's really important is that you have energy, enthusiasm, time and a real desire to help provide children with the best possible education.
Advice, support and training for the role of a Governor is given by Governor Services at the Council. Some Governors are elected by parents, some are appointed by the governing body itself or the local authority. This ensures governing bodies reflect the communities they serve.
Most of our meetings are held in the evening, but Governors do visit during the school day to see the school at work.
The term of office for a school Governor is normally four years.
If you are interested in becoming a Governor please contact the Clerk to Governors, Mrs Reid, via the school office.
