Governors

Welcome to our Governors’ section

 

School Governors play a fundamental role in leading the school, making decisions and improving standards of teaching and learning at Thythorn Field Primary School.

 

Our School Governors 

 

The Governing Body comprises of a number of people from a range of backgrounds and professions, ensuring diversity and a wealth of experience.  School Governors are represented by Parents Governors, Staff Governors, Local Authority Governors and Co-opted Governors.

 

Our Chair of Governors is Mr Andrew Munro. If you wish to contact Mr Munro, please email office@thythornfield.leics.sch.uk, making the communication for Mr Munro's attention.

 

Governing Body Committees and Working Groups

 

The Governing Body meets as a full governing board (all meetings chaired by the Chair of Governors) to address three key areas: Finance and Resources, Standards and Leadership and Safeguarding, Health and Safety. Each area addresses a range of regulations and responsibilities, ensuring the school complies to all mandatory expectations in these areas. 

 

There is a separate Pay Committee which oversees performance management and other pay related matters. Please see the Terms Of Reference Document for further details.  The Pay Committee is chaired by Mr Andrew Munro.

 

Voting Rights

 

All Governors are full members of the governing board and have full voting rights.
