The Governing Body

Governor Information 

The Governors are responsible for the strategic direction of the school and promotes highs standards of educational achievement. It establishes the school's vision and aims within an agreed policy framework. The governing body works closely with the headteacher to agree the school improvement strategy, ensuring that plans and policies are in place and are effective. The governing body monitors and evaluates the work of the school by reviewing the performance of the headteacher, challenging and supporting the promotion of high standards. The governing body is responsible for ensuring that the school budget is used effectively and that financial records are accurate. Governors promote the interests of the school and take opportunities to share in its successes. In order to do all of this, governors need to gain knowledge through training, by attending meetings, reading a wealth of information, and regularly visiting the school. Governors need to work together as a team, under the leadership of the Chair of Governors. At Killinghall we are fortunate to have a very strong and dedicated team of governors who all work hard, continually looking at ways in which the school can improve further.

Our governing body was reconstituted in September 2014 following Governmental and Diocese guidelines. We now have a governing body made up of 10 governors. Currently the Governing Body operates as a complete unit, all governors attend all meetings, there are no separate committees. Each meeting has a specific strategic focus. None of the Governors have any declared pecuniary or non-pecuniary interests.
