Meet Our Governors
Governors play an important part of school life. Pinfold Street Governing Board is a group of 12 people made up of school staff, parents and other with a keen passion to ensure that the children of Pinfold Street Primary School receive the best education possible. The Governors generously give up their time to support all areas of school life.
Governors have 3 main roles:
To ensure there is a clear vision, ethos and strategic direction
To hold the Headteacher to account for the performance of the school, its pupils and the performance management of staff
To oversee the financial performance of the school and make sure that the funds are well spent.
The responsibilities of the governing body include setting targets for pupil achievement, managing the school finances, making sure the curriculum is broadly based, appointing staff and reviewing staff pay and performance. Some of these functions are discussed at separate committee meetings.
Standards Committee (S) – focus on pupil achievement
Pay and finance Committee (P&F) – focus on school budget, performance related pay and procurement
Health & Safety Committee (H&S) – focus to ensure Pinfold is a safe environment
