Pelham Primary School


Pelham's Board of Governors meets termly to discuss progress across the spectrum of school activities.

The statutory roles of the Governors are to:

• Set the school’s vision, ethos and strategic direction.
• Hold the head to account for educational and staff performance.
• Ensure financial resources are well spent.

In addition, every governor serves on at least one of two committees: Resources or Curriculum, Standards and Learning (CSL). These committees also meet termly and provide reports to Board meetings.

Governors regularly visit the school to participate in lessons, school council meetings and PTA events.

Governors produce a termly newsletter for parents, summarising decisions made at Board meetings. Please click the link below to read the latest newsletter.
