The main responsibility of the Governing Body of Kimpton Primary School is to determine the aims and conduct of the school with a view to promoting high standards of educational achievement.
The governing body holds the school to account for the quality, standard and effectiveness of the teaching and learning. In practice, the governing body works with the Head Teacher to determine how the school should develop to ensure continued improvement, and with the Head and staff agrees plans, policies, targets and procedures that work towards that development. Our aim is to be supportive, yet challenging, in order to support the school and to promote its improvement effectively.
The Governing body at Kimpton Primary School are a group of volunteers coming from the parent, teacher and the local community. Parent governors are elected from the parent body; Co-opted governors are elected from the local Kimpton community and staff governors from the Kimpton Primary School staff body. We also have four Local Education Authority Governors (LEA) who are appointed by Herts County Council for particular skillsets they can offer the school. Herts County Council also appoint a clerk to the governing body who is responsible for recording minutes of all discussions at Full Governing Body Meetings. All Governors provide their time on a voluntary basis and are unpaid.
We come from a variety of backgrounds and between us offer a diverse skillset and range of experiences to help support the short, medium and long-term development of the school.
If you would like to speak to any of the Governors please feel free to approach us at school events, or contact the school office. We look forward to seeing you around the school.
