Welcome to our Governors’ section. 

East Wichel Community Primary School and Nursery has a Governing Body made up of parents, staff members and members of the local community. The Board currently comprises two Co-Chairs, three Parent Governors, two Co-opted Governors, the Headteacher Governor, one Staff Governor and two Associate Members.


The Governing Board’s three core functions are:

1) Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction

2) Holding executive leaders to account for the educational performance of the organisation and its pupils, and the performance management of staff

3) Overseeing the financial performance of the organisation and making sure its money is well spent.

Governors have chosen to hold six Full Governing Body (FGB) meetings and four Resources and Curriculum sub-committee meetings per academic year.


Please find below further details of our Governing Board membership and further information under the various click links.
