Local Governing Body

What is it?

All schools in England have a Governing Body which is responsible for overseeing many of the strategic decisions of the school.

Byron Primary School converted to become an academy in January 2016 and is part of The Westbrook Trust.

 

Who are your governors?

 Our governing body consists of:

  • The head teacher
  • 2 parent governors
  • 4 co-opted governors
  • 1 elected staff governors

 

The governance structure of The Westbrook Trust can be viewed here.

 

 

The standard term of office for a governor is four years. The chair and vice-chair are elected annually at the first meeting of the academic year.

 

The chair of governors is Miss Lilian Gould. Messages for her can be left at the school office or emailed via byronoffice@thewestbrooktrust.org
