Meet the Governors

The governors are responsible for the overall direction and effective management of the school, and for providing the best possible education for the pupils, whilst acting within the framework set by legislation. The Governing Body is therefore involved in formulating and setting policies and determining strategies. Governors are not however expected to take detailed decisions about the day-to-day running of the school. The Headteacher is responsible for the internal management and organisation of the school and its staff.

Elsenham Church of England Primary School’s Governing Body has up to 13 members: four elected parent governors, one elected staff governor, one governor appointed by the local authority (LA), one governor appointed by the Diocese, one governor elected by the PCC and three governors co-opted from the schools community. The Headteacher and the Vicar also attend Governors' meetings.
