The Craylands Governing Body

As the governing body of The Craylands School, we will:

Use challenge to hold school leaders to account

Provide clarity of vision and strategic view

Ensure financial probity

This is the constitution of our Governing Board:

The Headteacher

5 Co-opted Governors

1 Local Authority Governor

1 Staff Governor

2 Parent Governors

The Governing Board operates on the Circle Model of governance. This means that rather than having committees governors work as individuals or small groups to monitor the work of the school. They report back to the full governing body on their activities.

These are the people in post, with their terms of office and governor responsibilities (these will be updated after the governors’ meeting on 16th October 2018):
