The Local Governing Advisory Board for the Federation

Every school has a Governing Board, consisting of specified numbers of various categories of governors depending on the type and size of school. The governing board helps the schools provide the best possible education for their pupils. They have three key roles of:

  • setting strategic direction to help raise standards
  • ensuring accountability to all stakeholders for the school's overall performance and for the decisions they have made
  • monitoring and evaluating school performance and progress towards the school's priorities and targets

They support the Headteacher and staff as well as challenging their expectations.

Our federated governing board is responsible for Werrington School and North Petherwin Primary Schools and consists of 8 governors (2 parents, at least one staff, and 4 or 5 co-opted).
