The Governing Body plays an essential role in ensuring the highest quality of our educational provision at Hawley Primary School.

They do this by working alongside the school staff to set the strategic vision for the school, fulfilling their statutory duties and being heavily involved in making decisions about staffing, the curriculum, finance, premises and the welfare of the children. Crucially, they also monitor the school’s performance and provide support and challenge to the leadership team of the school to ensure that the school is a safe, healthy and inclusive environment in which to learn.

The Governing Body consists of 13 people, made up of members of the school staff, a Local Authority appointee, parents and members of the wider local community.

Parent Governors

Parent Governors play an important role in representing the views and concerns to the governors and we are always looking for interested parents who want to contribute to the school in this way.

Contacting the Governors

If you are interested in the work of the Governing Body and would like to share your views, or discuss particular issues the Governors are always happy to meet with parents.

Parent Governors are often available in the morning at drop off and at parent evenings. They can be identified from their photographs on the parent noticeboard in the school courtyard. You are also welcome to contact the Chair of Governors by letter via the school office.
