Our local governing body consists of unpaid members who monitor the strategic direction of the school. We are not involved in the day-to-day running of the school but we use our mix of skills to hold the head teacher to account and scrutinise the financial probity of the school ensuring value for money is obtained from our allocated budget. We discuss and agree school improvement strategies with their priorities and targets which we monitor over the school year. We have a responsibility for health and safety ensuring risks to the organisation are adequately managed and taken interest in the well-being of both students and staff.


If you have any queries about the governing body at Exwick Heights Primary School, or you would like to get involved, please contact the school and ask to speak to the Clerk to the Governors. You can also email the Chair of Governors, Mrs Anne Parsons Brice via the clerk
