The Kilmorie School Governing Body is currently made up of 11 governor places, 1 staff, 4 parent, 5 co-opted governors and the Headteacher, who is an ex-officio governor. We have one governor vacancy at present.
We aim to provide outstanding support, leadership and guidance to Kilmorie school, its pupils, its teachers and staff in order to enable the school to achieve its aims and mission.
The governing body helps to plan the strategic direction of Kilmorie primary school and we have an overview of school development and the curriculum.
We meet once a term and address national and local directives that affect the school as well as asking key questions about the current school position and planning for the future.
In addition, governors are involved in committees to address areas such as school performance, as well as other issues to do with buildings and finance. We also make regular visits to the school to see the curriculum being delivered and to look at policy in practice.
We play an active role in the school and enjoy involvement in school performances and events – you can find us at the summer barbecue and the Christmas Fair.
Governors support the school through the school’s vision and aims through Link Governor roles and responsibilities, please see how Link Governor roles support the schools vision:
