The Governors At Little Chalfont Primary School

The purpose of the Governing Body is to work in partnership with the school to provide the best possible educational experience for our pupils. Please see the "What does the Governing Body do?" document below for more information.

 

The Governors are delighted with the last Ofsted judgement that Little Chalfont Primary School is an outstanding school and congratulate the Headteacher and staff on achieving this highest accolade. Their hard work and dedication made this achievement possible.

 

Below you will find information about the Governors and their responsibilities.

Performance Review Governors (PRG) = Alison Smith, Sarah Johnson & Caroline Rifkind.

For Complaints, HR Related and Pupil Discipline Committees, Governors who have prior knowledge or a conflict of interest or loyalty would not agree to join the committee. No Governor can sit on an appeal panel if they were involved in the original decision.

The full Governing Body, Resources and Pupils Committees are clerked by Ann Baines who is employed by the school for such purposes.

A warning appeals panel will comprise one governor and an officer from Human Resources.
