Springhead Park Governance Partnership


At The Springhead Park Primary we have a dedicated Governance Partnership Board.  All governance partners work voluntarily to ensure the effective management of the school, alongside the Headteacher and Deputy Headteacher. They contribute a range of skills from a variety of backgrounds.  The relationship between the Governance Partners and the Head teacher and staff is one of support and challenge.


Our Governance Partners are often in school, formally and informally, keeping in touch with school life.  Our Governance Partners meet regularly throughout the year, either as a 'whole body' or in sub committees.


Governance Partners have some input on the following:

  • Long term plans and the direction of the school

  • School policies

  • Health and Safety, and the development and maintenance of the school

  • The quality of provision for all children, and setting targets for improvement

  • Attendance

  • Staffing 

  • Parental queries
