Governance Information

The Governing Body has overall responsibility to ensure the quality and standard of education provided by Amy Johnson Primary School is as high as possible. In order to do this the Governors are involved in the life of the school in many ways, some examples are:

  • They visit the school frequently and support school functions
  • The Full Governing Body meets at least once a term to discuss a range of issues
  • Governors committees also meet termly to consider more specific areas of the school such as Finance, Staffing, Health, Safety and Security, Pupil Welfare and the Curriculum.
  • There are four committees which also meet termly – Curriculum & Standards, Resources, Premises, Health & Safety and Community Involvement.
  • There is a full governing body meeting each term.
  • Details of our Governing Body are:

      Full Governing Body

      Alan McIntosh

      The Governing Body plays a key role in ensuring that our school provides a safe and secure learning environment for all our pupils and monitors the work of the school to ensure that all pupils receive an effective and high quality education. Its role is to provide strategic support, whilst leaving the day to day running of the school to the Headteacher and Senior Leaders. The Governing Body does not make all decisions but delegates responsibility to its sub-committees who hold termly meetings and then feed back into the termly Full Governing Body meeting.

      Resources Committee

      Angela Gbebiken
