School Council

Governing Body of The Federation of Leeming and Londonderry Community Primary and Pickhill Church of England Voluntary Controlled Schools

 

The Federation of Leeming and Londonderry CP and Pickhill CE Primary School’s Governing Body is responsible for the following 3 strategic functions:

  • Ensuring the clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction
  • Holding the Headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils
  • Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well-spent.

The Governing Body appoints the headteacher and delegates the day-to-day running of the school to her.

The Governing Body currently meets six times per year. The resources committee meets three times a year with the focus on the strategic financial planning for the school. 

The Clerk to the Governors is provided through our SLA with the local authority and is currently Jonathan Spencer. 

There are 11 governors, consisting of:

  • Headteacher;
  • One Local Authority Governor (who is nominated by the Local Authority);
  • Two Parent Governors (who are parents of current or recent pupils and are elected by parents);
  • Four Co-opted Governors (who are asked to join the Governing Body due to specific skills that they possess);
  • One Staff Governor;
  • One Foundation Governor (appointed by the Diocese of Leeds);
  • One Ex Officio Governor (appointed by the Diocese of Leeds)
