The Governing Body of Larkspur Community Primary School has worked in the past academic year to fulfil its responsibilities and achieve the three core strategic functions:
•setting the vision, ethos and strategic direction for the school
•holding the Head Teacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils
•overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent
The Governing Body is made up of the Head Teacher, one Local Authority representative, one member of staff, two parent governors, nine co-opted governors and an associate governor. The Chair of Governors is Mrs Jean Bush, the Co-Chair is Mr Gary Carr the Vice Chair is Mrs Ruth Grant.
The full Governing Body meets once each term, and we have committees which consider different aspects of the school. All governors are invited to attend the Curriculum and Standards committee. There is also a Finance and Staffing Committee and a Premises, Health and Safety Committee.
