Welcome to our Governors' section. 

The Governors work with the Head Teacher and the Senior Leadership Team to oversee the strategic direction of the school. Acting as a critical friend, whilst holding our professional colleagues to account for all aspects of the schools performance, ensuring the highest standards of education for our children.


The Galfrid School is a part of United Learning whose Trustees hold the ultimate responsibility for the governance of each United Learning school.

The Department for Education’s governance handbook 2019 identifies the essentials of effective governance as follows:

Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction; holding the executive leaders to account for the educational performance of the organisation and its pupils and the effective and efficient performance management of staff; and overseeing the financial performance of the organisation and making sure its money is well spent.

United Learning’s Trustees delegate certain key roles and responsibilities to the school’s Local Governing Body (LGB) and these are set out clearly in our Scheme of Delegation which can be seen on the United Learning website.

Our Governors have been appointed for what they can contribute and because they are fully committed to having the school, students, families and staff at the centre of everything they do.


Please find below details of how our Governing body is structured, including the names, categories, responsibilities and terms of appointment for each Governor.
