Maylandsea Primary School Local Governing Body

Maylandsea Primary School has a local governing body whose main responsibilities are to;

  • Provide strategic direction for the school
  • Hold senior leaders to account for the performance of the school
  • Ensure financial, curriculum and academic accountability

Governors come from many different sections of the community, and all walks of life. They are parents, staff at the school, residents in the locality or representatives of local communities.


Our governing body meets four times a year as a full local governing body that feed into the board of Trustees for the academy trust. We have a pay committee that also feeds into the academy trust's pay committee. Individual governors attend monitoring visits each term to support and challenge the senior leadership team's SEF judgements, SDP progress and for individual aspects of the school. Our trust governors are appointed by the trustees, staff governors are appointed by the school staff and parent governors are appointed by the parent body.


Our current local governing body members are:

Mrs. L. Austin (Chair) (T),  Mrs Clare James (Head teacher) (S), Mr J. Cliff (P), Mrs M. Farrant (T), Mrs J. Robson (T), Mr N. Coalbran (P) Mrs K. Groves (S)


T = Trust Governor; P = Parent Governor; S = Staff Governor
