Governing Body Update

Message from Chair of Governors - Rachel Powell

R Powell

I would like to introduce myself as the Chair of Governors at Clutton Primary School.

I know many of the parents already as until recently I had a child at the school, and have first hand experience of what makes Clutton School so special and such a great place for the children – I love seeing them run into school in the morning with smiles on their faces!

Whenever I visit the school during the day it is so lovely to see the children so happy and engaged in their learning, plus it is wonderful to see how polite they all are (such a credit to the school).

I run my own Learning and Development business that focuses on Leadership and Behavioural Change, so I am a fan of ‘life long learning’. Our passion (or not) for learning starts at a very early age, hence why I am so keen to understand what the school is doing and how they are ding it so that we can really engage the children at the earliest age to embrace learning.

I am very excited to work with all the amazing staff at the school who are doing such a fantastic job – just look at how they all dealt with lockdowns as a testament to how great they are and how much they all care.

I regularly visit the school, so if you want to come and say hi to me, I’d love to meet you.

Role of the Governing Body

Governors come from a variety of different backgrounds, reflecting the many interest groups in Clutton Primary School, but they have one important thing in common. They are dedicated to ensuring that all the children in the School have the best possible education at all times. This is the primary focus of all governors.

Clutton Primary School Governors have a wide range of experience, knowledge and competence working effectively as a team making corporate decisions.

Although the work of the governing body is voluntary, it has many responsibilities, but generally it is there to be a critical friend to the school, and to challenge and support the leadership team.

Becoming a Governor

If you are interested in serving the school and wider community as a governor, you will need to contact  the school.

Parent Governors are elected by other parents at the school for a fixed term of 4 years. Parents are advised in writing when a vacancy for a Parent Governor arises. Full details of the criteria and the process for nominations and any election are provided at the time.

Staff Governors are members of the School staff* who are elected by the staffing body (both teaching and non-teaching). 

Community Governors are appointed by the Governing Body to represent community interests or to bring specific skills to the Governing Body.

Director appointed governors are appointed by the Trust. The Trust will appoint governors with a particular skill set required to fulfil the role of the governing body.

*Employees from other Trust schools may be brought in as a director appointed governor, based on a specific skill set. However, a balance of MSNSP employees and non employees will be met.
