Langton Green Primary School is a fantastic place for children to learn, as our children and parents all know, and this was endorsed by the Ofsted team who visited us in summer 2012.

This success was achieved by the vision, creativity and sheer hard work of all staff; to sustain this and remain a great place for children requires that creativity and work to continue.

The rôle of the Governing Body is to support and encourage continuing development and improvement within the school – by challenging the management team, recognising success beyond the statutory constraints of Ofsted, and making our school a place where staff love to teach and children love to learn.

If you would like to know more about the work of the Governing Body, or think you might be interested in becoming a Governor, please let Mr Cornelius or one of the other Governors know.

Langton Green Governors March 2016

The governors fulfill their function through the termly meetings of the 'Full Governing Body', the regular meetings of the three operational committees, regular governor visits to the school and ad hoc meetings to deal with non routine matters.

Achievement and Learning Committee (Chair: Katrina Lyle) is as the name suggests focussed on the outcomes for pupils in terms of both achievement and progress and interacts with staff to be involved with current developments in teaching. This committee is responsible for understanding the Government's performance data for our children.

Leadership and Management Committee (Chair: Sam Stillman) is principally involved with school management and organisation, employment and performance matters. It has a further small committee that reviews Headteacher performance as well.

Resources Committee (Chair: Mark Gamble) looks at all Financial matters such as budgeting and monitoring, also those relating to the buildings and grounds, such as maintenance and any minor capital projects.

The Full Governing Body is ultimately responsible for school performance and financial probity and is run with constant regard to the standards set out by Ofsted. In practical terms, it is the forum where key matters from the Committees are shared, and if of over-riding concern, discussed further. In addition the Head Teacher reports on current school performance and progress against the School's Development Plan.
