North Marston CofE Primary School

Challenging each other to love learning and truly care. “Love never gives up “ 1 Cor. 13




A warm welcome from the Governing Body of North Marston School. Our role is to provide a strategic overview of what is happening in school and to support the Headteachers and Staff in making the school as effective and efficient as possible. Governors have a wide range of skills and work with Miss Brew on such matters as the curriculum, data, finance, health and safety, staffing and HR. The work of the board is ongoing but we meet as a full Governing Body six times a year (twice per term). Three of these meetings are assisted by a clerk who helps us to keep up to date with legislation and current matters and the other three are strategic meetings to share progress and plan for the future. We also have two committees and you can find out more about our individual governors on out “Meet the Governors” page.
