Newly Elected Parent Governor
Thank you to those parents that expressed an interest in becoming a parent representative of the Schools Governing Body. I am pleased to confirm that Ms Chambers self-nomination stood unopposed and has officially been elected to this role.
The school staff and governors welcome Ms Chambers to the role.
OUR GOVERNING BODY
The Governing Body at Longford Park School and its Committees meet once a term. Governors serve a four year term of office and may seek to be re-appointed. Parents have the opportunity to stand for election as a parent governor and so become involved in the running of the school. The Governing Body is also made up from a representative from the Local Authority, Staff Members and other Co-opted members from the wider community and businesses.
The Governors have a general responsibility for determining the policy and effective management of the school, acting within the framework set by national legislation and by the policies of the Local Authority. However, the Headteacher controls the day to day running of the school.
Ultimately, the governors answer to the parents and the Department of Education for the running of the school. The Governing Body is part of the school partnership ethos at Longford Park School which works voluntarily for the good of the school with the interests of the pupils as paramount.
